Man airlifted to Harborview after being trapped under vehicle
A man was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center on Thursday morning after the vehicle he was working on fell on his chest in southeast Auburn.
Valley Regional Fire Authority Firefighters and King County Medic One Paramedics were dispatched at 8:29 a.m. The man, estimated to be in his 70s, was working under a vehicle in front of his residence when it slipped off the jack.
An Auburn Police officer arrived first and used his own jack to lift the vehicle off of the man. Firefighters and paramedics removed the man from under the vehicle and began CPR.
After being stabilized, he was transported to the Auburn Airport where he was taken by Airlift Northwest to Harborview for further evaluation of his injuries.
