WATCH: Dangling Driver’s Daring Rescue

It seemed like a Christmas miracle that rescue crews were able to save this trucker in Palm Beach County, Florida.

According to Fox News, an accident sent a scrap metal hauler over the edge of an overpass on December 23. The crash, combined with slick road conditions, caused the trucker lose control of the 18-wheeler and drive over the barrier, leaving it dangling from the bridge.

Palm Beach County Fire and Rescue arrived on the scene and parked under the hanging rig. They used a firetruck’s ladder to reach up to the cab where crew members were able to open the driver’s side door and help the trucker out. Once he was safely out of the cab, he kissed his hands and waved them in the air in relief.

Once he reached the ground, crew members loaded him onto a stretcher and drove him off in an ambulance. Despite the significant damage to the hood and engine of the semi, the driver was uninjured.

Watch the rescue below:
