Man rescued after Brooklyn scaffolding collapse
CROWN HEIGHTS, Brooklyn (WABC) -- A man dangling from a rope four stories above the ground after a scaffolding collapse was pulled to safety by police officers Saturday.
The officers were on foot patrol in Crown Heights when they heard a loud noise.
It turned out to be the scaffolding collapsing so Officer Stephen Manucci and Sgt. Troy Luis ran to see what happened.
When they arrived, they saw a man dangling approximately 40 feet in the air.
The two officers ran up to a 3rd floor apartment on Rogers Avenue where they were able to pull the man to safety.
