Crews rescue man pinned under collapsed mobile home


Altoona, Wi. (WEAU) - Crews rescue a man after part of the awning on his mobile home collapses, pinning his leg underneath.

It happened just after midnight Friday morning in the Hillcrest Estates mobile home park in Altoona, at 20 Pansy Lane.

It took the Altoona Fire Department a little more than 30 minutes to get the man out.

Altoona Fire Captain Shawn Loegering said crews had to be very careful when making the rescue so no one else got hurt.

The man was taken to the hospital with a leg injury.
