Two people were stuck in an elevator on the outside of a huge crane at the Port of Portland's Terminal 6. 40 mile an hour winds caused the elevator to get stuck. Paul Corah, with the Fire Bureau, says they used one of their ladder trucks to rescue to the pair. The winds made the rescue interesting, the high winds made the ladder bounce around a little bit, but Corah says those ladders were made to stand up to some high winds. The elevator was stuck at 80-feet, so the 100 foot ladder was extended all of the way to reach them. If the elevator got stuck any higher, they would have been lowered down by the rope rescue team.
