A reportedly 400-pound Pasco County man who became trapped in his mobile home when the floor gave way was rescued Wednesday by emergency responders, the St. Petersburg Times reports.

“He was pretty much sitting in between the floor joists and couldn’t get up,” said James Higgins, a Pasco County Fire Rescue battalion chief.

The manager of the mobile home park said the man told him he had been stuck for two days. But rescuers said it was not clear how long he was trapped.

“They would ask him one time and he’d say a day,” Higgins said. “They’d ask him another time and he’d say he had been there for an hour.”

It took about eight rescue workers to get Daniels out of the home in a stretcher, mobile home park manager Gene Morton said. “He’s one big man.”
