A crane operator was badly injured and trapped Monday when the crane overturned while hoisting a large steel container at a Scripps Institution of Oceanography dock in Point Loma. The accident was reported at 1:45 p.m. at the institution’s Nimitz Marine Facility at 297 Rosecrans Street. More than a dozen firefighters worked for more than an hour to free the man from the operator’s cab. At about 2:50 p.m., rescuers finally managed to extricate the man.
