Today a construction worker on the 116th Street playground reconstruction project was trapped in a trench as the soil surrounding the ditch slid into the pit up to his hips. A 911 call was placed by the construction crew, and multiple rescue teams responded. FDNY and NYPD rescued the worker as soon as they secured the site. The rescue took about an hour, and the worker was retrieved with no life-threatening injuries. The worker was transported to St. Luke’s Hospital in good condition. The site is now secured and work will resume next week.
