A construction worker was saved after getting trapped in a 10-foot deep hole Wednesday afternoon prompting a rescue effort.
The incident happened around 3:20 p.m. in the Royal Palm Golf Estates at Eagle Lakes Golf Club off US-41 in south Collier County.
According to Grater Naples Fire District, the worker was stuck in a hole that was caving in and filling up with water.
Chief J Nolan Sapp said when the urban search and rescue team arrived, water was nearly up to the man’s shoulders.
They started sucking out water and mud from around him to help in getting him out. Eventually, Collier Public Utilities showed up with a vacuum truck and that sped up the process of getting him out.
The man is being transported to the hospital for a check-up to make sure he’s OK.
