Leg entangled in wheel well of a motor vehicle...

From the Brewster Fire Department:

On Saturday, January 18th at 9:49 p.m. Brewster Fire/Rescue was dispatched to a reported male trapped under a vehicle in the rear parking lot of 1993 Main Street.

On arrival, Squad 241 and Ambulance 242 under the direction of Firefighter/Paramedic Kirk Rounseville found a male with his leg entangled in the wheel well of a motor vehicle.

Firefighters immediately initiated extrication of the patient by using high pressure air bags to lift the vehicle off of the ground to gain access to the area.  Deputy Chief Varley arrived on scene and assumed command of the incident.  

Using the air bags and cribbing to lift and stabilize the vehicle, firefighters were able to rapidly gain access to and remove the patient's entangled leg from underneath the vehicle.   The patient was then promptly transported to Cape Cod Hospital with non-threatening injuries.
