At about 10.20am this morning (12 April), SCDF personnel and specialists from the DART team were deployed for a height rescue operation at a construction site at Beach Road.

The worker was on a side-mounted tower crane and he was feeling giddy on top, and was unable to climb himself down to safety.

The firefighters climbed up a “cat ladder” to assess the worker, who was on a landing platform about 55 metres high, of the 75-metre high crane.

The DART team then established anchoring points to set up a lowering system and using a “one-man rescue method”, a DART specialist on the crane attached himself to the worker and both were safely lowered to the ground.

The worker was then conveyed to Raffles Hospital.
