MOBILE, Ala. – Officials in Alabama say a man has been rescued after falling roughly 40 feet into a hold of a ship out of Norway.
News outlets report that Mobile Fire-Rescue spokesman Steve Huffman says the man fell Wednesday night while loading rolls of paper at the Alabama State Docks. Officials have not released his identity.
A crane onboard the ship was used to lift the man from where he fell and set him down on the dock.
Huffman says the man was in a lot of pain but was in stable condition as he was transported to a hospital.
