Rescue Entrapment on 7/15/2021

*Construction Incident*
July 15, 2021 @ 2:15 PM
The South Windsor Fire Department along with Ambulance Service of Manchester and South Windsor Police Department were dispatched to the area of Buckland Road and Deming Street for the report of a construction worker pinned underneath a pipe on a construction site.
Cars 29, 10, and 11 responded along with Rescue 5 and Engines 2, 3, and 4. Upon arrival of Police and Fire, the pipe had already been lifted off the patient by construction workers via a chain and an excavator. The patient had originally been working on a system underneath the pipe that broke, approximately 6 feet deep in a trench. Workers had moved the patient out of the deep, compromised area of the trench as emergency services arrived on scene and began to assess and render aid. A second patient was located who injured his hand while removing the pipe from the first patient.
Crews finished removing the patient from the trench and both patients were transported to the hospital. The road was shut down and OSHA was called to the scene. The cause of the incident is under investigation by OSHA.
