ROCKY HILL, Connecticut (WFSB) — A man needed to be rescued from the roof of a home in Rocky Hill on Friday.
The Rocky Hill Fire Department said the man suffered a non-life-threatening leg injury.
The man was found on top of a side entry roof to the single-family home.
Firefighters said they couldn’t get him down a ladder in the man’s state.
So, they mounted an aerial rescue using a crane. They placed the patient in a stokes basket for stabilization.
The rescue took about 12 minutes, firefighters said.
“This was an intense, low frequency-high risk operation, where the each member’s training allowed all involved to safely complete the rescue,” said Douglas Clarke, public relations officer, Rocky Hill Fire Department.
