Worker pinned under log

Emergency crews in Penticton rescued a worker who was pinned under a log, Tuesday afternoon.

First responders were called to a worksite off of Pinetree Way, east of the Campbell Mountain landfill, just after 4 p.m.

Penticton Fire Department deputy chief Dennis Smith said the man's leg was stuck beneath the log and airbags were used to extricate him. The worker was then air lifted from the scene.

The cause of the accident and the extent of the worker's injuries are unclear.
