A utility worker was buried under sand and concrete when the “narrow” trench he was in collapsed around him. Rescue workers used a rescue dog and vacuum excavation to locate the man, according to news reports.
The man has been identified as Javier Romero, 25.
It took about two hours to find the body, and another two hours to recover it.
Images from the scene shot by ABC7News (below) show rescuers lying on plywood guiding the vacuum excavator above the collapse, which news reports say was eight to 10 feet deep.
