OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - A 17-year-old boy was rescued from a trench outside an Oakland home Sunday afternoon.

KCBS reports (https://cbsloc.al/22SpzCt ) Monday that fire crews responded to a call Sunday morning and found the boy trapped under a piece of fallen concrete at the bottom of a six-foot trench.

Fire crews freed the boy, and he was transported to a local hospital. His condition was not immediately available Monday. His name was not released.

The homeowners had hired the boy to do some construction work on the property.

It is unclear what caused the accident. No one else was injured.
