Rescue crews are on the scene of a rescue/recovery effort in Westchester County after a construction worker became trapped beneath 10 feet of dirt when a trench collapsed at a construction site.

The incident began around 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 4, on Shore Acres Drive in the Village of Mamaroneck, according to the Village of Mamaroneck Police Department.

Emergency crews at the scene requested a vacuum truck to remove the worker from the cave-in. 

Mamaroneck police escorted the specialized equipment to the scene in an effort to save the man's life.

The latest word was the effort has switched to a recovery effort due to the length of time the worker has been buried under the dirt.
