MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — From a serious fall from a grain elevator in Minneapolis to a huge recall for Lululemon, here are the four stories to know for Friday, June 26.

Grain Elevator Fall

An urban explorer is in the hospital Friday morning after falling 40 feet down the abandoned Fruen Mill in Minneapolis.

Rescue crews spent more two hours trying to get the man out.

He’s said to have facial injuries and possible broken bones.

The man had been exploring with two friends when the fall happened along Thomas Ave North.

Officials are asking people to stay out of these elevators after a 20 year old died earlier this month at a different elevator.

Draft Craziness

The Minnesota Timberwolves get one of the best prospects in basketball, and the best player to come out of Minnesota recently!

We’re excited about Karl Anthony Towns and Tyus Jones, of Apple Valley!

Towns will be introduced at a press conference today at 1 at the new Mayo Clinic Square.

Friday night will be another exciting night, as the Wild have the 20th overall pick in the N-H-L draft.

Wardrobe Malfunction For Lululemon

Its latest recall is a literally a slap in the face to customers.

The high-end athletic company is recalling 300,000 tops because the drawstrings can snap back and hit people in the face.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission reports seven reported injuries to people’s face and eyes.

Historic Day For Madame Tussaunds Wax Figures

Actress and activist, Laverne Cox is the first transgender person to receive a Madame Tussaunds wax figure.

It’s another stride for the star of Netflix show “Orange is the new Black.”

The reveal is Friday along with San Francisco’s pride week for the LGBTQ community.

Can’t make it west to celebrate? Our own Pride festival kicks off Friday night with a beer dabbler in Loring Park at 5:30 p.m.
