Firefighters, tow truck free man stuck between trailer and building (MI)


Recommended Posts


JACKSON, MI – A 37-year-old Jackson man woke up Friday morning stuck between a storage trailer and a building, unsure of how he got there after a night at the bar, police say.

Rescue crews were called at about 9:20 a.m. Friday, Feb. 15, to the 600 block of E. Washington Avenue, where they found the trapped man, Jackson Police Lt. Adam Williams said.

Arriving police officers and Jackson firefighters found the man wedged in a gap between an offloaded semitrailer being used as a storage container and a building it was pressed up against, Williams said.

Both the man and the rescue crews were unable to determine how the man became stuck where he did, Williams said.

The man told responders the last thing he remembered from the night before was getting kicked out of a bar and walking away in the dark, Williams said.

The Summit Township Fire Department was called to assist with its heavy rescue equipment and a truck from Jimmie’s Towing was called to help pull the trailer away from the building to free the man, police said.

The man was taken to Henry Ford Allegiance Health with minor injuries and possible hypothermia from being exposed to the cold for an unknown amount of time, police said.

He is expected to make a full recovery, police said. The incident was listed as a suspicious situation, though no crime appeared to have been committed, Williams said.
