The accident, which happened in Brooklyn around 11 a.m. on Monday, May 6, caused the two men to suffer serious, but non-life threatnening injuries after being trapped under the weight of the cherry picker truck. The responding rescue team from the fire department was able to free the two men after nearly an hour.
