Toronto firefighters have rescued two construction workers who were trapped in a trench in North York on Friday.
Capt. Mike Strapko of Toronto Fire Services said eight trucks and 30 firefighters were involved in the rescue, which started around 1 p.m. on Misty Crescent, near York Mills Road and Bayview Avenue.
The men were in the front yard of a home under construction when the collapse happened.
Paramedics took the pair to Sunnybrook hospital as a precaution, along with a third man who had jumped in to help.
Strapko said they brought in special equipment for the operation, which was difficult because there could have been another collapse.
