Emergency crews raced to the rescue in Quincy on Tuesday after a man was injured on a ship, Polaris. 

According to officials, the man was trying to secure a plank when he became pinned between a gangway and a railway as the gangway was being swung into place. 

It took some time for crews to rescue him. 

"When we first arrived they were still trying to get the gangway in place," said Quincy Deputy Fire Chief Paul Griffith. "We had to wait about 10 to 15 minutes to get the gangway in place."

The man was rushed to the Boston Medical Center to be treated for a crushing wound to his abdomen. The Quincy Fire Department believes the man’s injuries are non life-threatening and he is expected to be okay.
