LEHI — Crews in Lehi were able to free a man who was partially buried in a deep trench.
Tuesday morning, a 10-foot deep trench in the front yard of a Lehi home near 2400 North and 910 West collapsed on a worker, burying him in dirt up to his head and pinning him against a pipe.
Rescue crews worked to free him from the entrenchment and thick, wet dirt, but were concerned about further collapse and injury. The man was transported by ambulance to a medical helicopter before being taken to Utah Valley Regional hospital, according to police.
According to fire officials, the man is a Whipple Service worker.
