From Oxford (AL) Fire Department Facebook page on Saturday:

At 2:50 pm this afternoon OFD responded to a call at Hooligans Harley Davidson on Davis Loop to a man on a lift had made contact with the power lines and was trapped approximately 25 feet off the ground. Upon arrival the lift was on fire with no way to get the man from the lift until the power was cut off. OFD personnel made the decision to create a make shift life safety net out of a tent. As the fire grew the man decided to jump. As you will see in this video this saved his life. The man was flown to UAB with a leg injury and smoke inhalation. Hats off to Battlion Chief Curtis Cupp who’s quick thinking saved this man’s life.
