HARROLD, SD -
A construction worker injured at the grain terminal in the central South Dakota town of Harrold is listed in critical condition.
Authorities say Rudy Begay of Arizona fell about 35 feet onto a platform about 150 feet above the ground Tuesday. Emergency crews used a crane and a rescue basket to bring him to the ground, in an operation that took more than half an hour.
Begay was taken to a Pierre hospital and later transferred to a hospital in Sioux Falls. Hughes County Sheriff Mike Leidholt says that Begay suffered a broken right arm and also hit his head in the fall.
