POTOMAC, Md. (WJZ/AP) — Dozens of rescue personnel worked for more than three hours to free two workers trapped up to the necks in mud when a trench collapse pinned them to the foundation of a home.

Montgomery County fire and rescue officials said the workers were freed Thursday evening.

The accident occurred on Martingale Court in Potomac. The workers became trapped in a 15- to 20-foot trench while doing work on the home that required digging down to its foundation.

The workers were conscious and breathing throughout the rescue, which involved more than 50 workers.
