At approximately 6:10 p.m. Lufkin Fire Department Special Operations Unit was requested by Central VFD, Redland VFD and Angelina County Sheriff’s Department to assist with a person trapped in a trench.  

LFD Chief 2, Battalion 1 and Rescue 4 arrived to find a person in an excavated hole, entrapped by sand.  LFD quickly developed a rescue plan and began extrication efforts.  

The General Manager for the company at the work site was used as a subject matter expert as well as the City of Lufkin Superintendent of Water and Sewer.  The person was successfully rescued from the trench at approximately 7:10 p.m. with the assistance of all agencies on scene as well as a private contractor of the company at the work site and was handed-off to Angelina County EMS for evaluation.  

Thank you to all entities involved, including the City of Lufkin Water and Sewer Department for bringing additional heavy equipment and trench shoring boxes to the scene for rapid deployment if it had been needed.image0.jpeg
