KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - A man has been rescued after becoming trapped when a trench collapsed on him in Kansas City, Kansas.

Kansas City media outlets report that wet soil caved in on the man while he was remodeling his home Tuesday. According to the man’s son, he was buried up to his chest.

Firefighters had to use a harness and rope to pull the man to safety. Fire department deputy chief Craig Duke said the man was trapped and compressed for so long, they were worried about circulation issues.

Once the man was freed, he was transported to the University of Kansas Hospital for treatment.
