Georgia farmer was trapped in silo waist-deep in soybeans

(AP) - Emergency responders in southeast Georgia we're trying to free a trapped farmer who was partially buried in a grain silo full of soybeans. 

Bulloch County public safety director Ted Wynn said the farmer was sank past his waist into the soybeans Wednesday afternoon and couldn't pull himself free. He says rescue workers had a harness around the trapped man so he won't sink any farther and they we're slowly draining the beans from the bottom of the silo. 

On Wed. County 911 director Kelly Barnard says firefighters and other responders had been trying to free the man for more than three hours. She says the trapped man is 50 years old and that he doesn't appear to be injured. 

It wasn't immediately known how the farmer got stuck in the silo.
