A Storm Lake man remains in serious condition after being trapped inside a grain bin.

Twenty-three-year-old Segoviano Rodriguez was working with a crew building a grain bin at the Heartland Co-op in Slater when the roof of the bin collapsed.

The cave-in caused Rodriguez to be pinned between the metal roof and the scaffolding of the bin. He was rescued by his co-workers who used a crane to remove the debris on top of him.

Rodriguez was taken by air to Des Moines where he remains in critical condition.
