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.
