A 29-year-old Seattle construction worker was rescued after being buried up to his waist in dry concrete in a construction accident reports The Seattle Times. The man, who worked for Ash Grove Cement Company on East Marginal Way South, became trapped when a wall of the concrete powder collapsed, tipping over the backhoe he was operating and piling on top of him. It took firefighters about 1-1/2 hours to extricate the man, who at times helped the firefighters by wielding a shovel himself.
The man was alert and conscious when he was freed and was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle for treatment of minor injuries.
