Newton firefighters rescue raccoon from top of turnpike light tower

Raccoon being rescued from the top of a light fixture on the turnpike

Ari Herzog could only watch in amazement this evening as Newton firefighters used a ladder truck, a thin lasso and a box to rescue a raccoon that had somehow survived crossing the turnpike and then climbed up the top of a light fixture sprouting from the Jersey barriers that separate the two sides of the highway.
