CLEARWATER – Firefighters cut a man out of a tank on top of a pest control truck this morning (July 11), Clearwater Fire and Rescue said.

Firefighters said they were called about 10 a.m. to an address on Capri Drive where a man was stuck inside a fiberglass tank atop his pest control truck.

The man had been leaning into the tank to clean it when he became stuck and could not get out. Firefighters had to cut apart the fiberglass tank to extricate him. He was taken to a local hospital to be
checked out as a precaution.
