An Oklahoma man was rescued from a scrapyard after crews found him buried beneath thousands of pounds of metal that tipped over a truck with him in the driver's seat on Friday. Crews spent over an hour in an effort to free the man, who was trapped in the mangled truck, but seemingly unharmed, under the pile around 9:30 a.m., according to KFOR.
The victim reportedly pleaded with crews to rescue him. "Get me out of here, I don't care what you have to do," Fire Chief Benny Fulkerson told the outlet, recalling what the victim was telling them.
Fulkerson told the outlet that the pile was mounted with "car parts and lawnmowers and washing machines and all kinds of things."
He said the experience must have been "terrifying."
The entire rescue mission took an hour and 15 minutes.
