Emergency responders had to help a man Monday after he was pinned under a collapsed garage.
The Indianapolis Fire Department was dispatched to the 3000 block of West 10th Street just before 1 p.m. after a garage fell on a man's legs during a demolition.
Three men were hired by the homeowner to tear down the garage, which was damaged in a car crash in May.
Witnesses said Darrell Jones, 42, was standing too close to the garage when the final load-bearing post was taken down.
A corner of the garage fell on Jones' legs, but a nearby storage container took some of the impact and kept the debris from crushing the man, IFD said.
The other two men tried to free Jones using a scissor jack, but ultimately had to call IFD for help.
Crews were able to free Jones from the debris in about 10 minutes' time, and he was taken to the hospital to be checked out. IFD said Jones was in good condition.
