Forest City Workers Stranded in Bucket Truck After Hydraulic Line Failure

Some workers in Forest City were stranded in a bucket truck for a brief time Tuesday morning after a blown hydraulic hose left their bucket inoperative.

City workers who are also Forest City Volunteer Firefighters used the aerial truck’s ladder to get the workers down.

The truck was repaired, and work continued on removing dead and dangerous trees from city right of ways.  No one was hurt in the incident.
