    Fairfax County paramedics treated a man whose foot got stuck in a conveyor belt.

    County Fire and Rescue Department spokesman Dan Schmidt said the 31-year-old man's foot got stuck Wednesday as he and others were moving gravel into a truck on Mayberry Street in Falls Church, Va.

    Schmidt said the man was in a lot of pain but remained conscious. He said paramedics treated him while rescue workers freed the man, which took about two hours.

    He is expected to be OK.
