NBC NEWS — Dramatic video was released of a rescue effort in Norway that went horribly wrong.
An 18-wheeler didn't have proper tires and was being pulled up an icy mountain road in western Norway on Sunday, April 1.
A rescue worker was trying to pull the tractor trailer to safety with a tow truck when suddenly both vehicles went over the side and down a cliff.
The driver of the tow truck managed to get out just in time, but the driver of the stranded truck wasn't so lucky.
He survived the 200-foot fall with multiple fractures, but is now in stable condition.
