Posted by Warren Krech on November 26, 2013

It took about 90 minutes, but Fulton rescue crews save a worker trapped in the earth Monday.

“[He] was trapped in a trench that had partially collapsed on him. He was covered from about his waist down.

Fulton fire chief Dean Buffington says the 50-year-old city contractor was working on a sewer pipe along Country Club Drive Monday morning.

Buffington says the worker was taken to University Hospital in Columbia with non-life threatening injuries.
