At 9:08 on September 18th, 2018 Littleton Fire Rescue Engine 17 and Medic 18 responded to a medical emergency on Woodgate Dr. in the Back Country Community in Highlands Ranch. Upon arrival the crews found an injured worker approximately 14 feet below grade in the foundation of a home under construction.  The foundation was surrounded with a narrow, deep trench with no safe way to lift and carry the person out.  South Metro Fire Rescue Tower 34, Rescue 34 and Medic 34 responded with Technical Rescue Team personnel and created a rope hoist system with a Stokes Basket attached to the 95’ aerial ladder.  Paramedics treated the injured patient who was secured in the basket and slowly lifted out to the street.  The person suffered serious, non-life-threatening injuries and was transported to the hospital. 

Units on Scene: Battalion Chief 1, Training 12, PIO 30, Engine 17, Medic 18, Tower 34, Rescue 34 & Medic 34
