Crane operator's arm nearly severed in accident 300 feet up
CINCINNATI (AP) - A crane operator in Cincinnati had to call 911 for rescue after his arm was partially severed in an accident nearly 300 feet up in the air.
A fire official says the crane operator made the call after a cable sliced underneath his arm Friday.
Rescue crews used a basket to lower the worker.
Authorities say the man lost a lot of blood but was conscious and alert when he was brought down.
The accident happened at a construction site at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center.
