MESA, AZ - Fire officials say a man was taken to the hospital Tuesday night after he was crushed by an 8,000 pound boat.
Mesa Fire Department spokesman Forrest Smith said the accident happened around 8:00 p.m. near Alma School and Guadalupe Roads.
Smith said the man was trying to lift the boat with a jack, and because it was wet, it slipped and fell on him.
Mesa fire and police crews worked together to free the man from underneath the boat.
Smith said the man was taken to the hospital in critical, but stable condition.
The man's name has not yet been released.
