Man trapped beneath 'large sheet of glass' in St Austell
A MAN had to be rescued by firefighters in St Austell this morning after he inexplicably became trapped beneath a large sheet of glass.
Paramedics requested support from the fire service after realising they would need specialist crash rescue equipment to shift the pane.
It is not known at this stage how the man became trapped, and no one at South Western Ambulance Service has been available to shed more light on the accident, which happened on Stennack Road, at around 9.40am.
Several glass-related businesses are located on the road.
