    We had an unusual extrication a couple weeks ago where a conventional tractor went off the end of a bridge and found itself sideways about 15 feel above the water. The driver had his leg trapped against his seat and a part of the bridge. The air chisel was the tool of choice for us to cut through the sleeper to get access to the patient. We ended up using a ram to force the floor pan up with the butt of the ram against the top of the "A" post.

    As it turned out, the patient's leg was trapped at the knee. It was amputated about 4 inches beyond that where we had no access until we got him out.
