City worker rescued from trench in University Park neighborhood

At around 10:30am this morning, University Park Fire Department responded to a trapped worker near the intersection of Binkley Avenue and Golf Drive.

Officials say a city worker was installing a sewer line when a side wall of the trench collapsed and trapped the worker in the pit from the waist down.

University Park firefighters requested the assistance of Dallas Fire Rescue’s Urban Search and Rescue (USAR) teams to help with the situation.

After about 30 minutes, the worker was freed and transported by paramedics to a local hospital in stable condition.
