A Department of Sanitation truck somehow managed to smash halfway through the wall of a third story parking garage in Queens, New York Wednesday morning, leaving both the vehicle and the driver dangling perilously in the air.

Over 100 firefighters respond to the scene, and within 30 minutes they were able to rescue 56-year old Robert Legall using a tower ladder truck.

Legall, who Department of Sanitation officials claim just lost control of the vehicle, was hospitalized with neck and back injuries.
