The call went out to rescue a man who was stuck in a 20-inch diameter pipe at a water treatment facility. Initial emergency responders were faced with a task that was multi-faceted, resulting in a response from multiple agencies and jurisdictions. The unorthodox challenges all the responders faced that day led to various stumbling blocks that required critical thinking for solutions for the rescue.
