Firefighters were called out to Wyevale's Windlesham Garden Centre last week when a man fell two metres between two metal shipping containers and became stuck.
It is thought the man was standing on top of one of the containers in the Chertsey Tool Hire area of the garden centre when he fell between them. Two Surrey fire and rescue service crews were called out to the garden centre to rescue him.
Watch commander Tim Harrison said: "[The man] had fallen down between two shipping containers.
"We don't know how he fell but think he was working on top or cleaning the container. There was enough space to get to him however he had fallen on some signs which were being stored in the gap.
"He was left almost upside down, lying almost horizontally. It took us 20 minutes to get him out as we had to remove signs first to move the casualty onto a spinal board.
"He will definitely have some bruising but seemed to not be too badly hurt but went to hospital to be checked."
Ambulance crews treated the man at the scene and took him to Frimley Park Hospital for further assessment.
