Fire and Rescue teams on Sunday morning rescued a ten-year-old boy trapped inside an overturned truck at the Somech Interchange in northern Israel. 

The truck slid, rolled over and landed on the side of a bridge, hanging "between heaven and earth" at a height of 13 meters. 

The truck driver was evacuated in moderate condition, and shortly afterward the aforementioned child was also rescued. 

Firefighters noted that it was a very complex rescue mission as the child was trapped in an area to which they had limited access.
