Police say the man is about 60-years-old and lives at 188 North Quincy St. The neighbor's home is directly behind his house.

The camper went through a metal fence, as well as some bushes and logs that were stacked up. The man was trapped in the camper.

Neighbors Norman Little and Larry Lambert saved the man before first responders arrived.

The victim is recovering at the hospital. His injuries are not life-threatening.

Officials used a crane and a heavy dump truck to pull the camper out of the pool.  They experienced some difficulty because there was not enough room to maneuver the equipment.
