TAMPA, Fla. -- First responders had to climd a 10-story crane to rescue a man who had a medical emergency Wednesday morning in downtown Tampa.
About 8:30 a.m., Tampa Fire Rescue crews were called to 1115 E. Twiggs St., after the crane operator suffered a medical emergency.
Medics scaled the crane, then secured the patient in a harness and lowered him to a lower level, where he was placed in a basket and lowered the rest of the way to the ground.
The patient, whose name has not been released, was taken to Tampa General Hospital.
