A contractor was buried in a trench he was digging, according to the Coatesville VA.
This happened today at around eight a.m. at the Coatesville Veterans Affairs Hospital on Blackhorse Road. The contractor was rescued about two and a half hours later and transported to Pioli Memorial Hospital. His condition is unknown at this time.
The contractor was installing an emergency generator and was digging a trench to do pipe work. The details are unknown at this time, but he ended up buried to the neck in the five foot trench that he was digging. His fellow workers dug him part way out, and the Chester County Rescue Taskforce did the rest.
Wildfire danger continues into Thursday evening with low humidities and dry conditions. Winds continue to gust close to 30 mph.
