By FireRescue1 Staff

LEXINGTON, Ohio — An Ohio firefighter is recovering after his legs were crushed between two tanker trucks Sunday.

Firefighter Josef Tadijanac, 45, a Washington Township volunteer, was responding to a fire when a fire truck rolled into his legs, pinning him to a stationary fire truck, according to the News Journal.

"He has undergone two surgeries to restore circulation from the knee down," Washington Township Fire Chief Dave Compton said.

The house fire, now under investigation, was extinguished in about two hours but left the residence uninhabitable.
