Wilmington firefighters were called into action to take a seriously-injured worker off a ship in Berth 1 at the Port of Wilmington Saturday night.

Crews were able to put the worker, who was 40 feet below deck, into a Stokes basket and lower him from the ship to the dock using ropes on January 9, 2021.

The worker was taken to Christiana Hospital to be treated for unspecified injuries.

No firefighters were hurt.
