A firefighter/paramedic helped get a plastic bag off a crane’s head.

The fire department says a person called concerned the crane may walk into traffic.

The department posted on Facebook, “So, one of our Firefighter/Paramedics, using hand-eye coordination developed from years of playing baseball, was able to safely approach the crane and remove the plastic bag from around its head and neck.
