Firefighters were called out to a rescue a county parks and recreation worker from a malfunctioning bucket truck in the Shirlington dog park this morning (Thursday).
The man was stuck in the bucket after the arm of the truck stranded him near a tree at the park’s entrance at S. Four Mile Run Drive and S. Oxford Street.
First responders at the scene said the worker was not injured and brought down without incident.
Signs near the park said the area would be closed for tree trimming today.
The rescue effort briefly involved the closure of that section of the park, but it’s since reopened.
