A MEMBER of staff at a Stratford-upon-Avon restaurant got his arm stuck in a dumbwaiter this morning, as two fire engines and an air ambulance descended on the town.
The waiter, known as Enzo, was working at Mida Mediterranean Coffee House and Restaurant on the corner of Sheep Street and High Street when he got his arm stuck at around 10am.
An air ambulance attempted to land at the scene, but the force of the propeller blades threw parasols and chairs across the road. The pilot decided to pull out of the landing, and chose instead to land outside the Royal Shakespeare Theatre.
Onlookers crowded around the scene in the middle of town as members of the fire service freed the man's arm from the mechanical lift that transports food to and from the upstairs kitchen to the cafe on the ground floor.
The owner of the restaurant, Mida Zouhou, told the Herald in the immediate aftermath that Enzo was able to move his fingers on the arm that was stuck.
