MOUNT LOOKOUT, OH (FOX19) -- A 25-year-old man is in stable condition Monday after he got trapped under a 10,000-pound electron microscope.

It happened just before noon on Monday when the man and several other workers were transferring the microscope onto a trailer.

Ironically, the accident happened at the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health facility in Mount Lookout.

The microscope landed on the man's chest. He was taken to University Hospital, where he is listed in stable condition.
