Thursday 9 a.m. at a construction site in the North Riverdale section of the Bronx, dozens of firefighters were in a rescue mission to save a man trapped in a trench.

Almost 100 firefighters with EMS crews worked together for nearly two hours to rescue a man trapped in a trench. The trench partially collapsed along Mosholu Avenue and 256th Street in the Bronx.

The man was working to clear a waste pipe when the trench fell down. However, things did not go as expected.

SkyFox camera was over the scene at that time and shoot the rescue moments.

After two hours of nonstop attempts, they pulled the man from the 10-foot deep hole. Then, the firefighters took the man to the hospital on a backboard to evaluate the injuries.

Fortunately, nobody else was injured in the location, not even the workers.

“It took quite a bit of time in a tight space. One of the hardest things was just being patient and working and having our firefighters work in the trench and be patient and have it be slow but a safe operation,” FDNY Deputy Chief Michael Brown said.

We hope in the future to see robots that can take the human place in the unsafe work sits.
