GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) - Family members have identified a man working on a sewer line at a Grand Rapids home who 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 Saturday who was alert but trapped by soil and concrete. A wall supporting a porch collapsed.

Family members tell WOOD-TV (https://bit.ly/1Qdx5UO ) that Oscar Rocha Alonso died and had been helping a friend with the project. His brother Javier Rocha Alonso tells the TV station that he don’t know how to explain what happened to other family members.
