Docent Topples From Midway Deck

A 71-year-old volunteer worker at the USS Midway Museum fell from one deck of the retired aircraft carrier to another Thursday. He became wedged in a hatch and it took rescue crews about 45 minutes to free him. The accident left the man stuck ``essentially in a hole,'' requiring emergency personnel to carefully hoist him out, load him in a gurney and carry him up to the top deck of the 68-year-old vessel.
