This is a photo of a below grade rescue that my crew was involved in on Saturday 11/16 02 at around 715 am. A worker at a water treatment plant fell about 20 ft to a concrete floor, landing on his head. The worker sustained a fractured skull and cervical injuries. This is a photo of FF Donald Buechele attached to the stokes basket comforting the patient as he is lifted by crane to the waiting ambulance.
