Passenger gets trapped in car crushed by automated rotating parking system

First responders in Oregon said they had to rescue a passenger who became trapped inside a car that was crushed by an automated parking system. 

Portland Fire & Rescue posted on Facebook that the incident happened a few weeks ago at a rotating car parking system in a multi-president complex. 

They said the issue started with an open car door but didn't elaborate on how it caused the system to malfunction. 

Rescue crews said they dropped a ladder into a space after turning the system off to get to the passenger.
