NEW YORK — Firefighters finally pulled a trapped worker out of the mud and to safety early Wednesday, after working for four hours to free him as he worked on the Second Avenue Subway construction project.
The firefighter was hoisted out of the subway trench at Second Avenue and 95th Street at 12:41 a.m. He was on a stretcher when a crane pulled him up alongside two rescue workers.
