Three workers became trapped in a trench on Tuesday afternoon, requiring a tricky rescue in North Surrey.
The three workers were trapped in a trench that collapsed at 104 Avenue and 158 Street at about 12:35 p.m.
Two of them were rescued by co-workers, but the third remained trapped up to his chest.
Surrey fire crews, with technical rescue, performed a rescue about 30 to 40 minutes later.
The man was taken to Royal Columbian Hospital and appears to have no life-threatening injuries.
No word yet on what caused the collapse.
