DelDOT Worker Rescued From 10-Foot Trench

A DelDOT contractor was rescued from a 10-foot trench Friday in Newark, Delaware.

The dramatic rescue lasted at least an hour and SkyForce10 was there to stream it live. 

The contractor had been doing drain work on Old Baltimore Pike when he fell in, according to Newark's director of community relations.

Last year, a plumber was killed in Philadelphia after falling into a trench in the East Oak Lane neighborhood. Despite lengthy rescue efforts by about 100 responders, he could not be saved.
