Man freed after wall collapses

Grove Road, Fishponds, Bristol

Firefighters have freed a man after a wall he was working on collapsed on to him.

When crews arrived on the scene they found the 41 year-old trapped under breeze blocks and rubble inside a property.

Working alongside paramedics, who were administering pain relief to the man, crews removed the rubble. They then assisted the man on to a spinal board and he was taken to hospital with suspected leg and pelvic injuries.

It’s thought he had been working on the wall when it collapsed and trapped him underneath.
