First responders were unable to get a man out of his home after he went into cardiac arrest.

Firefighters were able to reach the 81-year-old man at 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday on Moreno Parkway, but an ambulance could not reach the man’s home.

Firefighters stayed with the man for four hours, unable to get him to the hospital. A front loader got stuck trying to reach him.

A volunteer came forward and provided the South Line Fire Hall with an Army truck, which was able to traverse the roadways and towed a vehicle to the fire hall with the man inside, but it was too late.
