CINCINNATI (AP) – Firefighters in Cincinnati rescued a crane operator after his arm was partially severed in an accident nearly 300 feet up in the air.
A fire official says the crane operator called 911 after a cable sliced underneath his arm Friday, causing the partial amputation.
Rescue crews used a basket to lower the worker.
Authorities say the man lost a large amount of blood, but he was conscious and alert when he was brought down.
The accident happened at a construction site at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center.
