MESA, Ariz. -

A man was pinned beneath his 8,000 pound boat as he was trying to get the boat onto a trailer Tuesday night.

This is near Alma School and Guadalupe in Mesa.

As he was lifting the boat onto that trailer, the jack slipped and he was trapped beneath it.

Neighbors rushed to help him but they couldn't lift the boat. Firefighters arrived to help.

"We considered him in extremely critical condition, but during the transportation, our fire paramedics continued to assess, and during that period it appeared his level of consciousness increased and he started to show signs of being more alert," said Mesa Fire PIO Forrest Smith.

The man was taken to the hospital in serious but stable condition.
