    Emergency crews have rescued a man who had a seizure while working 100 feet in the air.

    The man was working on some equipment at Lockheed Martin's "Cornfield Cruiser" located at Centerton Road in Moorestown, Burlington County.

    Skyforce10 was over the scene as the man was lifted off that equipment and lowered by a crane to the roof below. He was then lifted off the roof and slowly lowered to the ground.

    The facility, located near I-295, is well-known by people who live in the area because the facility looks like a warship.

    It's official name is the Vice Admiral James H. Doyle Combat Systems Engineering Development Site.

    According to the Lockheed Martin website, when the building was constructed in the 1950s, it was owned by the Air Force. The Navy purchased the building in 1977.

    It now houses both Navy and Lockheed Martin personnel who work to research and develop a combat system that guards against missile threats.
