A 52-year-old worker was injured at Port Everglades Sunday afternoon when a cargo container shifted and landed on his leg, trapping him.
The unidentified worker, from Lauderdale Lakes, was on top of the cargo containers of a ship docked at Berth 30 when a container shifted, catching his leg with it, according to Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue.
A rescue team used a ladder to reach the man, then stabilized him on the upper deck of the ship before safely bringing him down.
The cargo ship worker was taken to Broward Health Medical Center where he was treated for his injuries.
This incident comes two months after a fatal accident at the port. On March 15, two workers were killed and a third was critically injured when they fell several stories after a platform scaffold toppled over.
