Worker buried alive when wall collapses

POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. (AP) — Authorities say a construction worker was buried alive when a concrete and dirt wall collapsed on him at a commercial and residential development site in New York.

Poughkeepsie fire officials tell the Poughkeepsie Journal that the wall collapsed Thursday afternoon in the Hudson Valley.

Emergency crews found one worker trapped under debris and a second man injured nearby.

Officials say the trapped worker was dead by the time rescue crews reached him 30 minutes later.

The other worker was treated at a hospital.
