Injured shipyard worker rescued from USS Oak Hill
Norfolk, Va.- Norfolk and Virginia Beach fire rescue units rescued a shipyard worker from the USS Oak Hill Wednesday morning.
Norfolk units initially responded at 9:15 am to reports of a man who was incapacitated in the engine room of the ship.
The units rendered advanced life support to the man, but the location of the worker and his size prevented the Norfolk units from removing him from the ship.
Virginia Beach units were requested to provide mutual aid and the worker was removed from the ship using a rescue litter and ropes.
He was transported to a local hospital for further evaluation.
