Nursery worker dies after trench collapse


OSHA is investigating after a employee died from a trench collapse at a local plant nursery.

It happened around 11:30 a.m. morning at Flowerwood Nursery in Mobile.

A Mobile Fire-Rescue spokesperson says when they arrived on scene the employee was unconscious and trapped about waist deep inside a hole.

Officials say workers were digging a trench to lay water lines when it collapsed in on one of the workers burying him in the dirt.

Neither the company nor Mobile Police has released the name of the victims.
