Fire crews free trapped worker in Liverpool docks (21 April 2011)

A man had to be rescued by firefighters yesterday after the 60-tonne crane he was operating toppled over, trapping him inside, at Seaforth Docks in Liverpool.

The worker had to be freed from the cab of the crane by hazardous area response teams, the BBC reported.

He suffered non-serious head injuries and had to be taken to Aintree University Hospitals.

The incident took place at 9am at the Royal Seaforth Container Terminal, and it is thought the crane was being used to lift containers.

A health and safety investigation has been launched.
