Jacksonville (FL) Firefighters Execute High-Angle Rescue from Crane

Jacksonville Fire and Rescue’s technical rescue team lowered a man trapped 150 feet above the ground to safety on Tuesday.

The man was on a lift on a giant crane on Blount Island when an elevator on the side of the crane came down and hit the lift, pinning it and trapping the man more than 12 stories up, News4JAX reports.

Firefighters said the rescue was all about putting their training to the test, and the rescue went “flawlessly.”
