Rescuers Free Teen from Collapsed Trench in Muskingum Co.
MUSKINGUM COUNTY (Brooks Jarosz/Ken Hines) -- An 18-year-old man is recovering in a central Ohio hospital after being rescued from a collapsed trench.
The teen became trapped between a basement wall and the front of his family's home Monday morning in Falls Township, south of Dresden, while he helped with the house's construction, according to Muskingum EMS.
The teen was buried up to his waist when the dirt around the trench caved in around him.
Special rescue equipment, including suction trucks and vacuums, were brought in to loosen the dirt around the teen.
Once he was freed, the victim was flown to OSU's Wexner Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries, according to emergency workers.
