Rescuers Free Man From Collaped Trench


Emergency crews from the city of Milton and Forsyth County have extricated a construction worker trapped in a collapsed trench.

The victim, whose name was not immediately being released, was conscious and buried up to his waist Monday afternoon, said Lt. Shawn McCarty of the Milton Police Department.

The victim was freed at 3:49 p.m. after a Forsyth County vacuum truck sucked up dirt and soil around the man, McCarty said.

The man was being evaluated and was expected to be taken to a hospital for observation, McCarty said.

The trench collapsed about 1:15 p.m. at a construction site in the Hampshires subdivision off Freemanville Road. The man had been digging a sewer drain, McCarty said.
A trench support frame was present, but the trench wasn't big enough yet to accommodate it, police said.

Trench rescue teams were sent from Forsyth County, Atlanta and Alpharetta.
