At approximately 1335 hrs today, Engine 21, Amb 39 and Heavy Rescue 31 were dispatched to Dillingham Place for a person trapped under a motor vehicle.

The crew arrived to find a patient who had been working under a car in the parking garage when the jack failed, trapping him.

Firefighters quickly deployed air bags and cribbing to lift the vehicle off the victim and remove him.

He was treated at the scene and transported to Falmouth Hospital with non life threatening injuries.
