Florida rescue teams helped a woman stuck during a shark tooth search, officials reported.
The North Port Fire Rescue crew got a call Friday evening about someone in Sarasota County who might’ve hurt their leg in a fall, they shared on Facebook.
They found her at a dig site’s bottom, where she’d been hunting for shark teeth, the team explained.
“The digging at the base caused the wall to collapse, briefly covering the victim completely,” said the officials.
Her buddies managed to pull her out from under the rubble before the rescue team got there, the rescuers added.
North Port Fire Rescue, along with their Technical Rescue Team, used ropes and a Stokes basket to lift the woman over the 12-foot wall to the surface, said the rescuers.
“The victim was alert and oriented during the time the rescue took place,” the rescue team mentioned.
The Sarasota County Fire Department also came to assist and airlifted her to a nearby hospital for more treatment, officials stated.
