A man from the eastern Iowa town of Shellsburg is hospitalized after falling 75 feet off a grain bin. 22-year-old Andrew Nederhoff had climbed onto the bin at about 1 A.M. today after being chased off the Wildcat Golf Course in Shellsburg. Benton County Sheriff’s deputies climbed to the top of the bin and found Nederhoff asleep on a catwalk. When deputies approached him, Nederhoff woke up and walked around the bin. He fell 45 feet onto another bin, then 30 feet from that bin, to the ground. Nederhoff was taken to University Hospitals in Iowa City, where he’s in fair condition.
