Lorry left dangling out of third-storey window

 

This lorry driver got the freight of his life.
56-year-old Robert Legall crashed his vehicle through a wall, leaving it hanging from a third-floor window. He was left dangling in mid-air screaming for help and had to be rescued with a fire ladder.
The amazing crash happened at the Sanitation Department repair shop in Queens, New York.
The 16-ton salt-spreading truck was at the facility for annual repairs when the driver lost control.
The skidding vehicle crashed through the wall and – according to reports – the only reason it didn’t plunge to the ground was because the rear got caught on window frames. Two cars below were also crushed by the falling debris but no pedestrians were hurt.
The driver was taken to hospital and treated for neck and back injuries.
Onlooker Frank Almona told the New York Post: "I heard a loud bang and turned and I saw this truck sticking out of the side of the building.
"The driver was screaming like crazy, he was saying, ‘Help, help, help.’ He was hanging on."
