CINCINNATI (AP) — A crane operator in Cincinnati had to call 911 for rescue after his arm was partially severed in an accident nearly 300 feet up in the air.

Rescue crews used a basket to lower the worker.

Authorities say the man lost a lot of blood but was conscious and alert when he was brought down.
