PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- Four Portland firefighters lifted a pickup truck to rescue a man who was trapped underneath after an accident.

Battalion Chief Terry Munro told KGW that strength was the quickest and most efficient way to reach the man after the early Sunday morning crash in which the truck landed on its side.

The injured man was taken to Legacy Emmanuel Medical Center with life-threatening injuries. Two other people who were ejected from the truck were treated for minor injuries.
