(KNX 1070/CNS) - The man, who snarled traffic for a few hours on the 101 freeway Thursday afternoon, is now in custody.
Los Angeles City Fire's Brian Humphrey tells KNX large inflatable rescue air cushions that easy to transport and also inflate in less than 60 seconds.
"Among the equipment we have out there are the large inflatable, rescue air cushions and sometimes, those are the bags that stunt people fall into for the movies. These bags have been part of our arsenal for several decades and they can be very quickly installed. We want to assure those stuck in traffic, who see us working, that we can have those out of the way in less than 60 seconds."
