FAIRFIELD, Conn. — A Stratfield Road man was seriously injured Easter Sunday when he became pinned between his truck and a garage door, and was freed when firefighters and police used their bare hands to lift the truck away from him.

Neighbors called 911 at 5:58 p.m. Having heard the man call for help, they found him between the door of the truck and the vehicle’s chassis, the vehicle wedged against the jamb of the garage door.

American Medical Response transported the man to Saint Vincent’s Medical Center with severe injuries.
