Did any of you folks watch this show last night? In an Instant is an ABC program that reenacts catastrophic events. Last nights show was the story of Arick Baker, a young Iowa man who in 2013 went into a 40 ft. corn bin, broke through and was sucked down to the bottom. He was in there for over 4 hrs. and survived (no s**t!)


Heed the lessons folks!!! The only reason he survived was an unusual combination of factors. He should have been asphyxiated, crushed, chewed up by an auger, or had a heart attack. The reason he could breathe was because he was wearing a new type of face shield/mask that has a filtered air inlet.
