Firefighters in Indianapolis responded to an incident in which a car plunged off the third floor of a parking garage today.

Two people were killed in fall. Eighteen Indianapolis Fire Department (IFD) units responded to the scene, including Extrication Task Force 7 and the IFD Collapse Rescue Team.

Crews removed one victim, then flipped the overturned vehicle onto its wheels. They proceeded to deenergize and stabilize the vehicle before removing the other victim. A large slab section of garage barrier came down with vehicle, but searches underneath proved negative.

RITA L. REITH is a battalion chief with the Indianapolis Fire Department (IFD) and serves as the agency’s public information officer.
