CHICAGO — A water department worker was rescued from a trench by the Chicago Fire Department on Wednesday afternoon.
At around 12:30 p.m., crews were dispatched to the 6700 block of East End on the report of a person trapped.
Arnisha Taylor, who was working for the city’s water department at the time, became trapped with her safety equipment still attached. The Chicago Fire Department used a vacuum and tools to free the woman from water and dirt surrounding her.
“It was very cold. I was a little scared but I knew that thank God the firefighters were helping me out,” Taylor said.
She was freed from the trench and is in good condition.
