Seeing men die in an ugly fashion, buried in grain bins, pushed Dale Ekdahl to do something. The Elbow Lake, Minn., man, retired from a career in the Army, started building and selling “grain bin rescue tubes.” Last week, Paul Coppin, general manager of Reynolds (N.D.) United Co-op invited Ekdahl to talk to local firefighters and elevator employees.
Ekdahl’s “tubes” are really 18-inch-wide curved lengths of shiny aluminum, with ladder steps welded on the outside.
Cleanup at the site of a 100-foot-tall grain bin that collapsed in Minot is expected to be finished in about a week.
