VIDEO: Idaho Falls Fire Department Makes Rescue


When I first started watching this I wasn’t sure what I was looking at.  The title of the video was “man rescued” so when the clip starts you see a couple firefighters tending to something.  At first I thought it was a cat or dog and I couldn’t figure out why they were working on this pet if a person still had to be rescued.

Well turns out, what you are seeing is the person’s head.  The homeowner was in the basement and became trapped to one room.  The only way out was through one of those small, basement windows.  The person becomes stuck and has to be basically extricated from the window. Now you have suppression happening and an extrication going.

Goes to show you, expect the unexpected.
