Even with his arms stuck in a piece of machinery, one northwest Florida man was able to call 911 using his big toe.

Police said the unidentified man was at the DRS Technologies building early Thursday when he became trapped in a press-like machine that resembles an elevator.

He was alone.

He shook his cell phone off his belt, kicked off one shoe and used his toe to dial 911.

Rescuers used a thick metal bar to pry the machinery off his arms.

He was airlifted to a Pensacola hospital, where his condition was not immediately known.
