INDIANAPOLIS — Fire crews conducted a rescue operation after a person got stuck in a trench at a construction site on the city's east side, an official says.
Indianapolis and Greenfield fire units are currently at the scene, near Rawles Avenue and South Mitthoeffer Road, according to Greenfield Deputy Fire Chief Jason Horning.
Indianapolis Fire Department Public Information Officer Rita Reith says Adam Collar, 36, was digging sewer pipes in the neighborhood and was in the 8 foot deep trench for about three hours.
Reith says Collar will be okay and helped firefighters dig him out. The cold had an impact on the rescue. Crews were able to get heat down to him, but Reith says hypothermia had started to set in. He was taken to the hospital as a precaution.
As of 2:42 p.m., crews had gotten the person out of the trench, WRTV's crew at the scene confirmed.
The location is at a new subdivision where homes are being built, Horning said.
