A marine terminal accident that crops up from time to time


A marine terminal accident that crops up from time to time, involves some poor unfortunate getting caught up between a reversing tractor and a stationary chassis/container rig.

Most often, that type of accident is fatal. 

But, in the case of the accident shown below, a security roundsman actually survived with minor injuries after being sucked into the area between the tractor's fifth wheel and the chassis' gooseneck.

Marine terminal workers were able to gently extract him and then arrange for medical care.
