VIDEO: Buffalo Grove firefighters remove man from roof of a garage.

Buffalo Grove police received a report about 2:10 PM Thursday of a man that fell onto a roof of a house at 271 Lincoln Terrace Buffalo Grove, IL. A neighbor heard a man fall on to the roof of a nearby residence and called firefighter/paramedics. Police and firefighter/paramedics arrived to find a tree worker on a detached garage roof.

Firefighters laddered the roof with a ground ladder, immobilized and packaged the patient, and used a Stokes basket to lower the patient down the ground ladder.

The man was transported to a local hospital in unknown condition.

The man apparently was raised about 40 feet while sitting on the ball of a large Gatwood crane that was parked on the driveway. The worker fell while he was trying to secure a large tree limb to the crane.
