Towson, MD - March 11, 2009 - Firefighters in Baltimore County, MD were called to an unusual rescue on the campus of the Greater Baltimore Medical Center when a car plunged from a parking space about 30 feet down a ravine. Around 12 noon, Baltimore County Fire Dispatch alerted Rescue Box 1-10 when callers to 911 reported the female driver, the car's only occupant, was unable to free herself from the car. Medic 395 (Cockeysville VFC) was already at the hospital from a previous call and was first on scene, confirming a working rescue. Crews from Baltimore County Fire Dept. Truck 1 (Towson station) and Lutherville VFC Squad 303 worked to stabilize the vehicle with cribbing and rope, then began cutting away tree branches that hindered access to the victim. Firefighters were then able to force open a door on the passenger side of the vehicle and remove the woman, who was transported to the Emergency Department at GBMC and treated for minor injuries.
