A man in Hertfordshire has been rescued by a group of fire fighters, after he became impaled on a table leg in his loft. Red Watch at Watford fire station described it as a successful rescue on Twitter. He was taken to St Mary’s Paddington Hospital in London.
Fire crews on Saturday evening had to remove part of the roof of the house in Westfields, St Albans, so that they could help free the man. They brought the man, with the metal table leg still attached to him, through the gap in the roof they had created on a stretcher that was placed on an aerial ladder, quite an ingenious rescue method really.
Gary Sanderson, the spokesman for the East of England Ambulance Service, said that this was a most delicate incident to deal with, and that the crews worked extremely hard along with the fire service, to overcome the very challenging environment in which to treat, stabilise and immobilise the man before removing him out of the roof. He also added that the injury is luckily not life-threatening.
