ESTACADA, Ore. — Firefighters in the small town of Estacada southeast of Portland say that they rescued a person who had fallen into a septic tank and was stuck there for several days.
The Estacada Rural Fire District No. 69 posted on Facebook that crews had responded on Tuesday for a "confined space rescue call" after a person fell into the tank while working on it.
Fire officials said that the person had been in the tank for multiple days, though they did not say precisely how long. They also did not identify the individual.
A Technical Rescue Team and a Clackamas Fire crew helped Estacada Rural Fire District No. 69 remove the person from the tank.
The person was flown to a hospital, but the extent of their injuries was not released.
