Public Safety Beat: Man pinned under fallen mobile home

A mobile home being moved inside the Yankee Springs Meadows Trailer Park Monday morning slipped off its supports and trapped a worker underneath.

Authorities said the workers were lifting the mobile home to move it when the accident occurred. A helicopter was summoned to the scene to transport the victim.

Rescue personnel from the Thornapple Township and Wayland fire departments arrived to lift up the mobile home again, when it slipped off supports once again. The man was freed on the next attempt by sliding him from underneath.

Emergency personnel said the victim was awake after the incident, but his condition was not known.
