COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. – A worker has been rescued from a hole on Royal Hammock Boulevard in Collier County, near US-41.

Greater Naples Fire Rescue District

According to the Greater Naples Fire Rescue chief, the worker fell into a hole that was dug while crews worked on a sewer line. The man was trapped in a 10-foot construction hole after the sides collapsed along a broken water line, fire crews said.

The walls of the hole collapsed, and water rushed into the hole.

At one point, the man was up to his armpits in water, and was trapped several feet below ground level.

To keep him insulated, crews built temporary walls to keep the earth from collapsing around him.

The Greater Naples Fire District worked to get the man from the hole and were able to free him.

We’re still trying to find out the man’s condition.

This is a developing story.
