VIENNA, Wis. — Wisconsin firefighters rescued a maintenance worker who was stuck in the drum of a concrete mixing truck, authorities said.
The man fell into the empty drum while doing work in Vienna, located about 85 miles west of Milwaukee, WMTV reported. There was no concrete in the drum but it was spinning when the man tumbled into the mixer on Monday at about 9:30 p.m. CDT, the television station reported.
According to the release, rescuers found an escape hatch but it was too small for the man to use. Firefighters then used a plasma cutter to widen the opening, and the man was freed from the mixer at 11:01 p.m. CDT.
The man, who has not been identified, was taken to an area hospital, WMTV reported. His condition was unknown.
