YUCCA MESA MAN RESCUED AFTER TRAVEL TRAILER FELL ON HIM

A Yucca Mesa man can thank his lucky stars he is still alive today. County Fire Captain Matt Anderson said a man, identified only as being in his 50s, was working with his father on leveling a travel trailer on Wilhart Drive in Yucca Valley about 12:30 a.m. this morning when the travel trailer slipped off its support and fell on him. Anderson said when rescue personnel arrived on the scene at 12:47, only the man’s feet were sticking out from under the travel trailer. The fire fighters used air bags and wooden cribbing to lift the trailer—an inch at a time—about 10 inches up off the man. Anderson said it took rescuers about 15 to 20 minutes to lift the travel trailer off the man, and added that by then, the man had passed out from asphyxiation. Rescuers revived him and he was taken to Yucca Valley airport where he was flown to a local hospital for treatment of his minor injuries. Anderson said the man was “very lucky” and the stars were aligned in his favor.
