There were about 40 firefighters, paramedics, water rescue and technical rescue personnel that responded on this incident. The Technical Rescue Team (TRT) established a rescue system of ropes, pulleys and anchors. The TRT lowered firefighters, wearing safety harnesses, down the embankment. When firefighters reached the bottom they stabilized the vehicle to prevent any movement from its precarious position. Firefighters made patient contact at about 5:15 PM. The man was assessed and significant injuries were ruled out. He was placed into a safety harness, removed from the vehicle and was assisted up the hill with the rescue system that had been established.
Paramedics evaluated the man and transported him to an area hospital for treatment of pain in his leg, which the patient thought he injured while â€œstanding on the brakeâ€ when travelling down the embankment towards the water.
