PORTLAND, Ore. — Portland Fire &Rescue says a man was taken to Legacy Emanuel Medical Center with a head injury suffered in a fall aboard a large ship.
The department says its technical rescue team responded to the shipyards Saturday afternoon because it was believed a high-angle rope system would be needed for the rescue.
But that wasn’t necessary. The man was able to make it to the deck, where a crane was used to hoist him to the ground and an awaiting ambulance.
The injured man’s name has not been released.
