Toronto Fire Services say a worker in his 30s has been rescued after he was stuck in a trench at a home in the city’s north end.
Officials said they performed a trench rescue at a detached single family home on Warlock Crescent, in the Finch and Bayview avenues area, at around 10:51 a.m. on Monday.
Fire officials said there were reports someone was trapped in a trench after it collapsed.
A man in his 30s was rescued and then transported to a trauma centre in critical condition, paramedics said.
Paramedics also said a second person was treated at the scene but was not taken to hospital.
It is unclear how the collapse happened.
