Superior Mi. rescue on a freighter

A worker was rescued after falling aboard a vessel at Fraser Shipyards in Superior on Saturday morning.

Superior firefighters responded at 9:10 a.m. to the John J. Boland, a 680-foot freighter, where a worker had fallen an unknown distance in the forepeak, a fire department news release said.

Crews reached the man, assessed his condition, stabilized him and placed him in a rescue basket, in which he was lifted to the ship’s deck. Then he was lowered from the deck to the waiting ambulance crew on the ground below.
The man was taken to an area hospital, the news release said. His injuries didn’t appear to be life-threatening.
