Aerial Ladder Collapses on Man at Clymer Fire Department (PA)

A man doing a fire truck certification test was flown to a Pittsburgh hospital Monday afternoon after he was struck by a ladder at the Clymer Fire Department, the fire chief said.

Chief Mike Aikens said a rigger that supports the truck broke about 2:35 p.m., causing the ladder to fall on the man.

A helicopter landing zone was set up at the fire station on Sherman Street. The man, whom Aikens didn’t identify, was flown to UPMC Presbyterian Hospital.

Information about his condition was not immediately available.
