TMSG: Firefighters Get Trapped Man Out By Digging With Their Hands

In Houston, Texas, a man in his early 30s was doing work about 12 feet below a ground's surface. Dirt became loose inside the trench and collapsed on top of him to about chest level. 


The Houston Fire Department, a technical rescue team and a hazardous materials team all had to work together to dig him out.  The man was conscious during the entire rescue. With the situation though, these workers had to free him by hand because the vibration of heavy equipment could have caused a secondary collapse. Raw video from ABC 13 in Houston shows the scene where the worker was trapped.
