Man falls off of grain bin near Manlius

Life Flight helicopter dispatched

The name of a man injured Saturday in an agriculture-related accident was being withheld pending notification of family members, Bureau County authorities say.

A report that a 63-year-old man fell off of a grain bin drew a response at about noon Saturday from Bureau County deputies and Manlius and Princeton firefighters and emergency medical technicians, according to Jim Reed, Bureau County sheriff.

A Life Flight helicopter was called to take the man to St. Francis Medical Center, Peoria.
