Trench rescue on 35th

August 31st, 2009 · 46 Comments

UPDATE 2:30:  The fire department tells us that a man in his forties became stuck in the trench and was buried up to his upper thighs.  This happened while he was doing some work in the front yard of a home at 2413 35th Av W.  The rescue was difficult because the dirt was sandy and it was challenging to dig him out safely.   He is now on his way to Harborview with non life threatening injuries. 

UPDATE 2:15pm:  Our reporter at the scene says they have rescued the man from the trench.  No word on his condition yet.  Here is a photo from over the scene from the KIRO chopper. 

Fire and medics are responding to a trench rescue at 2413 35th Av W.  Early reports are that a man is buried up to mid-thigh in a trench that is 15 feet deep by 20 feet in length and four feet wide. There was a partial wall collapse. The man is breathing and alert.

    3 helicopters hovering over magnolia right now and heard sirens earlier. Is this related to trench rescue?

    here's another view from the street shortly after the fire department showed up. The city' big vacuum truck must have been in the neighborhood as it arrived about a half hour later.

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

    Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
