The Jaws of Life
Pasadena's finest came to the rescue yesterday at about 3 p.m. Firefighters from Stations 31 and 39 used the jaws of life to extricate an injured person from this car that crashed on the 710 Freeway at Del Mar Boulevard.
The jaws of life is a heavy-duty pneumatic tool that is used to pry sections of a wrecked vehicle apart.
