Long Beach, California – A Long Beach Fire Department spokesman said crews were sent to a 60-70 foot crane at the port of Long Beach in an effort to save a man suffering from cardiac arrest on Monday evening.
Capt. Jack Crabtree of the Long Beach Fire Department said that a report regarding a medical emergency had been received at 6 p.m., and that emergency crews had been sent to the crane in the 300 block of Mediterranean Way.
As soon as the rescuers arrived at the crane’s control room, they attempted to revive the man in his 50s and started performing CPR techniques, but their efforts were useless because shortly after, the man was pronounced dead.
The causes of the dead are yet to be determined by the Los Angeles County Coroner’s office.
