Worker from Underground Job Site in Boston Rescued
Boston, MA - An employee from Boston was rescued early this morning after being trapped in the underground job site he was working in, WVCB reported today.
The underground job site incident happened early this morning, at 1:15 a.m., where a worker was seriously injured and taken to a local hospital. The job site is located on Park Drive in the Fenway neighborhood.
The worker was seriously injured below ground when a grinder caught his shirt. Some witnesses said they saw the incident happen; others reported he was removed from underneath the ground safely through the help of many city officials.
According to the Boston Fire Department Deputy Chief Joseph Fleming, the worker that was injured was a construction worker. The name of the person has not yet been released.
According to the fire department and other officials, the victim of the incident was treated while he was stuck underground. Once initial treatment was conducted, the worker was safely packaged in order to be brought to ground level. Once he was on ground level, EMS workers took the man into their custody to give him the medical attention he needed.
While raising the man from beneath the ground, the fire department and other officials had to be careful to make sure they did not injure the worker any further. Many officials stated even further that getting the man to level ground was very labor intensive, considering they could not make any move that would alter the underground job site worker’s health further.
The worker that was injured was rushed to the closest hospital. As his injuries were assessed by doctors and other medical personnel, a decision was made regarding what to do next. The man underwent surgery shortly after being admitted into the care of the hospital.
No additional information was available prior to the victim going into surgery. As of now, no additional information has been leaked regarding the incident.
All we can do now is hope and pray that the victim’s recovery is far better than the experience he went through today.
