A road was shut after fire crews were called to a medical incident and launched a dramatic rescue operation.
It is understood a person was lowered to the ground from a flat using a rope rescue system in Bellvue Road, Ramsgate, today.
Paramedics were called but had to request assistance from the fire service shortly after 1pm.
It is understood a person was unable to exit a flat so crews used a rope system to lower the patient down to the ground.
The fire service confirmed they were called at 1.14pm to assist paramedics.
A spokesperson said: "I can confirm two fire engines and a technical rescue unit attended."
The ambulance service also confirmed their attendance, but said: "This was a call to a private address and as such we wouldn’t comment on the detail due to patient confidentiality."
