CHESHIRE, Conn. (WTNH)– A Cheshire firefighter was injured while rescuing a woman from a car.
The Chief of the Cheshire Fire Department tells News 8 that the firefighter was using a hydraulic tool to extricate a woman from a car crash when the tool broke. The break forced the tool into the abdomen of the firefighter, knocking the wind out of him.
The firefighter was taken to a local hospital for an evaluation but has since been treated and released.
The single occupants of both cars that were involved in the crash that required the extrication were also transported to the hospital. Their current conditions are unknown.
