2 Men Rescued from Trench in Toronto



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.
