HIALEAH, Fla. – A 60-year-old man was airlifted to a hospital Thursday morning after he fell from a truck in Hialeah, fire rescue officials said.

Sky 10 was above the scene at 9715 NW 138th St. about 10:15 a.m. as the man was placed onto a stretcher and taken away in a helicopter.

A Hialeah Fire Rescue representative said the man fell from a truck that was about 11 feet high and possibly suffered a broken leg.

The representative said the man was airlifted to the hospital as a precaution because of his age.

No other details were immediately released.
