Firefighters Rescue Driver Stuck Under Tens of Thousands of Pounds of Scrap Metal

Firefighters rescued a man they said was stuck under “more than 21,000 pounds of trailer and scrap metal parts” after a semi dump bed truck fell on to his vehicle in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, on February 5.

The incident occurred at a scrap yard. The majority of the scrap metal fell on the driver’s side of the vehicle, according to firefighters.

Firefighters used a winch to free the vehicle and the man was freed after approximately 90 minutes. He was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, firefighters said. Credit: Oklahoma Fire Department via Storyful
