Banker Saves Septuagenarian Trapped in Corn Silo


As we suspected! The incident we mentioned this morning in which two bankers rescued their children from a burning building was not a coincidental one-off act of heroism by financial-services professionals but part of a larger orchestrated plan to counteract the industry’s tarnished reputation, as evidenced by the following story out of Minnesota.

A South Dakota banker making a routine trip to a southwest Minnesota farm ended up saving the farmer’s life.

Everett Vande Voort, 74, became trapped in a bin of swirling corn earlier this month on his farm near Beaver Creek.

I was taking some corn out of the bin, it didn’t come, so I went up in there and poked with a pipe, and I saw the corn start moving, so I was going to go out again, and I never made it out,” he said.

Sioux Falls banker David O’Hara said he thought something might be wrong when he got to the farm.

Please. What self-respecting banker makes a trip to a corn farm? None, unless Lucas van Praag is driving them there.
