KNIGHTDALE, NC (WNCN) – A worker was injured Tuesday when he fell into an open ditch at a construction site north of Knightdale, officials said.
Just before noon, the Knightdale Fire Department was called to the intersection of Haywood Glen Drive and Old Night Road in response to a ditch rescue, according to Chief Loren Cone of the Knightdale Fire Department.
Four firefighting units responded and located a worker who fell 20 feet into a ditch.
Officials said the worker was conscious when found but may be suffering from a broken leg.
Knightdale Fire enlisted the help of the Raleigh Fire Department’s Technical Rescue Team and performed “a basket-lift rescue using a turntable ladder.”
The worker was pulled from the trench within an hour and transferred to WakeMed, Cone said.
The rescued worker is said to be in stable condition.
