    Dallas Fire-Rescue rescued a man stuck in a 120-foot construction crane Wednesday night.

    Firefighters responded to the construction site located on the 4600 block of Amesbury Drive at about 5 p.m. 

    Jason Evans, with Dallas Fire-Rescue, said the worker suffered an injury while doing some heavy lifting inside the crane.

    The rescue team used a special harness and rope system to lower the man to safety, Evans said.

    The injured worker was safely on the ground about 45 minutes later.
