GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) - A man working on a sewer line at a Grand Rapids home has died after a wall collapsed on him while he was in a trench.

Rescuers spent at least an hour rescuing another man in his 40s who was alert but trapped by soil and concrete. A wall supporting a porch collapsed around 1 p.m. Saturday.

The other man died at the scene, but no other details about him were immediately released.

Fire Battalion Chief Bart Perry says firefighters are trained to handle such an emergency and it “paid off” in the rescue.
