Clearwater Fire and Rescue workers work to free a 33-year-old construction worker June 13. The front-end loader he was using flipped and trapped the man upside down in an elevator shaft.
CLEARWATER Clearwater Fire and Rescue workers and its technical rescue team helped free a 33-year-old construction worker who became trapped after his Bobcat front-end loader flipped over June 13.

A call came in just before 3 p.m. about a construction worker trapped upside down inside an elevator shaft at 400 Cleveland St.

Rescue workers said the man's leg was trapped between the vehicle and the concrete wall of the elevator shaft. Firefighters had to work cautiously to free his leg, using a system of airbags to lift the Bobcat slightly off his leg to free him.

The victim suffered severe injuries to his lower left leg and was taken by helicopter to Bayfront Trauma Center in St. Petersburg.
