7:49 am on 5 December 2014

A port worker trapped when a crane tilted at Wellington Port this morning has been rescued unharmed.

The crane began to list about 4.50am.

The tilt of the crane meant the driver could not get out of the cabin, and he had to be rescued by Wellington Fire Service and port staff.
