Worker rescued from pit at Lower East construction site

Posted on Thursday, January 29th, 2015 at 1:23 pm    

The New York City Fire Department successfully rescued a construction worker who was trapped in a Lower East Side construction site, local authorities told CBS 2.

Emergency medical services responded to the situation at 413 Grand Street around 4:15 p.m. on Wednesday, January 21. Officials said the construction worker was 10 to 12 feet underground when the trench collapsed, trapping him in the pit. He initially was fully covered, but his coworkers were able to free his upper body. According to FDNY officials, the construction worker, who has yet to be identified publicly, was conscious at the time of his rescue, and rushed to a local hospital to treat his critical injuries.
