On February 7, 2013 at 12:30 a high angle rescue was dispatched in Haddonfield, New Jersey, at 520 Woodland Ave.
Crews arrived to find a crane that tipped and was suspended in air supported by the outriggers. One occupant was injured on the roof. The uninjured operator was trapped in the vehicle by live wires on the roof.
Ladder Companies from Westmont and Cherry Hill worked to remove the injured worker from the roof. The worker was transported to the Trauma unit.
PSEG arrived to secure the electric. Once power was shut down a crew placed a ground ladder to provide egress for the operator.
The accident is under investigation.
