Atlantic City firefighters rescued a construction worker who was trapped a 10-by-12-foot brick wall.
Using hydraulic rescue tools and emergency shoring jacks, firefighters from Rescue 1, Ladder 2 and Engine 2 were able to free the worker from the building on the 100 block of North Iowa Avenue, Fire Chief Scott Evans said.
The worker was digging a trench next to the building for a water line to supply sprinklers when the accident happened Friday morning, Evans said.
