Worker fainting in cargo hold
Firefighters rescued a man who fainted while working inside the "Impala" in the afternoon of Aug 18, 2019, at Port Everglades. The man, who suffered from heat exposure, was 50 feet down in the hold of the vessel. Workers were loading concrete when they stopped to report the medical emergency. Port Everglades station personnel moved quickly to treat the man with oxygen and intravenous fluids. The man was too weak to walk, so the agency's technical rescue task force used a ladder truck as a high point to secure the man onto a portable stretcher and lift him out of the ship. The rescuers brought him to safety dockside, where paramedics continued to treat him and took him to Broward Health Medical Center in Fort Lauderdale. At 11 p.m. the ship left the port, bound to Tallinn, ETA Sep 8.
