Man trapped by falling soil
A MAN in his 50s was taken to hospital last night after falling into a trench and becoming trapped by falling soil.
A Queensland Ambulance spokesperson said the man fell a few metres into a trench.
He became stuck when dirt fell in on him, trapping his legs.
Emergency services attended the scene and freed the man from the trench on Bauhinias Rd, Comet. He was transported to Emerald hospital where the man was treated for leg injuries.
