A Canadian military helicopter has rescued a man who was trapped at the end of a construction crane as a fire raged below.

The crane operator was stranded on Tuesday after a fire broke out in a large apartment building under construction in the city of Kingston, Ontario.

Police say the crane operator suffered only minor injuries.
