  • Description

    VISNEWS July 1 filmed outside Belfast, Norther Ireland, as rescue workers struggled to free two men buried when the sides of a trench collapsed. Another man, also working in the trench, was killed by the fall of earth and stones. It took rescue workers several hours to release the men.

    The trench, about 20 feet deep, had been dug to receive pipes for a big sewerage scheme. As firemen struggled to free the trapped men follow workmen helped to buttress the trench against a further collapse.

    It was over three hours before the last man was hauled out, strapped in a sling and transferred to an ambulance.
