Removal of 1,000-pound man takes medics over an hour
I've moved 1,000 pounds by hand before. Usually on a pallet jack or forklift, but this is ridiculous.
BEAVERCREEK — An ill, 1,000-pound man in the area in April needed help from about 13 emergency crew members to get to the hospital for treatment, authorities said.
Removing the patient from his home took 1½ hours and required firefighters to widen a doorway, said Scott Dorsten, deputy chief of operations.
“We ended up calling a private ambulance with a cot that was capable of supporting the weight of the patient,” Dorsten said. “We had to cut the door opening ... an extra 20 inches wider.”
