Rail Worker Rescued From Under Boxcar

April 24, 2004|From a Times Staff Writer

A railroad worker in Riverside County was pinned beneath a derailed boxcar for nearly an hour Friday before he was released with the help of a crane, authorities said.

The accident occurred in Mira Loma when two railroad workers were riding on top of a boxcar and it jumped the tracks and began to fall over. One man escaped injury, but the other man's right leg was pinned beneath the boxcar.

He was taken to Loma Linda University Medical Center, where he remained in serious condition Friday night, Riverside County fire authorities said.
