Chicago Fire Department crews responded to the scene and found the man down the shaft and two firefighters were lowered about 40 feet, using what’s known as a GripTech system, said Deputy District Fire Chief Dennis Carbonneau, in a short news conference at the scene, according to news video. GripTech is “a rope rescue system that allows rescuers to be lowered vertically or horizontally from one level to another, or for raising victims,” according the company’s website.
