Tenn. FFs Save Man Trapped in Silo

COLUMBIA, Tenn. --

Rescue teams pulled off a tricky and dangerous rescue. But after they saved a man from a grain silo, he disappeared.

Emergency workers spent more than an hour Monday at the silo on Hayes Denton Road in Columbia. They had to lower a harness into the silo, and with a firefighter in there to help, the man was pulled to safety.

But as soon as he was on the ground, he took off.

Authorities didn't get his name and don't know how he became trapped.
