No injuries and it looks like the bumper saved the day after a parking lot collapse during an EMS run in Chicago this (Tuesday) morning.

Luke Wilusz, Chicago Sun-Times:

The engine was parked on the second story of the garage about 10:40 a.m. when part of the parking deck collapsed underneath it in the 2400 block of East South Shore Avenue, according to Chicago Fire Department spokesman Larry Langford and Chicago police.

The engine’s bumper caught on a section of the deck that had not collapsed and prevented the truck from falling, Langford said.

Langford said the engine was at the garage to assist an ambulance with a medical call. He said engines have parked in that area of the garage in the past.
