Initially, the firefighters had expected to free a trapped person, but when they arrived at the scene of the accident, they discovered that the victim, a man in his 60s, was already freed.
He was treated for minor injuries at a nearby hospital.
“The initial report was there was a person that had been trapped by some collapse during a building construction project of a residential nature,” said a fire department representative. “But before we even got there he was freed – how, I don’t know. But we assessed that no other companies were needed.”
