BELDEN – A Tupelo man was trapped for 10 minutes Tuesday under a house trailer that fell off a jack while he was attempting to move it.
Charles Copeland was in the process of jacking up the trailer when it fell off the jack and cinder blocks, trapping him face down, said Belden Fire Department rescue worker Jeff Donald.
Firefighters tunneled in the mud underneath the trailer enough to get a board under Copeland so they could drag free him, Donald said.
The incident occurred about 1:15 p.m. Tuesday on County Road 1600 in Belden.
Copeland was treated and released Tuesday from North Mississippi Medical Center.
