FORT LAUDERDALE —
Fort Lauderdale firefighters rescued a man after he got his head stuck in a hotel’s exercise machine Wednesday, the Orlando Sentinel reports.
The guest got stuck at around 11:30 a.m. at the W Hotel at 401 North Lauderdale Beach Blvd., when he reportedly tried to work out his shoulders on a piece of equipment.
“He fell off the machine and he got caught up in the weight machine,” said Capt. Greg May of Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue.
According to May, the Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue’s Technical Rescue Team got torches and saws to help free the man, but before they started another crew member “manipulated the man’s head out of the machine using a bar,” he told the Orlando Sentinel.
The man, about 60 years old, suffered significant injuries and was taken to Broward Health Medical Center.
