Firefighters rescued a man found unresponsive and trapped between two buildings near 12th and Madison Thursday morning.
Seattle Fire Department rescue crews were called to the scene at Trace Lofts North just after 9 AM, where the male patient was found unresponsive in a narrow area about five-foot across, according to a SFD spokesperson.
A technical rescue team was able to lift the man out using a rope system, then navigated him through a first floor unit window. The patient was alert following the rescue and did not appear to have any significant injuries from a fall.
Medics determined the man suffered from a seizure, but were unclear why he was between the two buildings, the SFD spokesperson said.
