As Pioneer Hose firefighter Stephen Glaister carries a Stokes rescue basket, Eureka Fire Rescue EMS personnel load a patient into an ambulance who was injured at Allegheny Ludlum's new hot-rolling mill on the border of Brackenridge and Harrison shortly before 10 a.m. on Thursday, Aug. 29, 2013. Ludlum spokesman Dan Greenfield said the victim was an employee of a contractor working on the facility, which is under construction. Greenfield said the company is investigating, but it appeared the accident occurred as a cable was being strung and something in the process broke. Greenfield and Eureka Deputy Chief Brad James said the victim's injuries were not believed to be life-threatening; James said no technical extrication was required. Greenfield declined to identify the victim or the contractor.
