Police have confirmed that a 26-year-old man rescued by the fire service on Saturday 5th Oct was lucky to escape without life-threatening injuries.

The ambulance service called for assistance from the fire service after they were called to assist a man who had ‘reportedly’ fallen from scaffolding onto the roof of a shop on The Boulevard.

Three fire crews attended to assist including one from Crawley, an aerial ladder from Horsham and the Technical Rescue Unit.

A spokesperson for West Sussex Fire & Rescue Service said:

“Fire officers helped ambulance teams to stabilise the casualty, before they were taken down to ground level by the aerial platform.”

The young man was then taken by ambulance to East Surrey Hospital where it was confirmed he had sustained knee and shoulder injuries, not thought to be life threatening.
