ATLANTA – Two construction workers are still recovering a day after being rescued from a 14-foot hole on Georgia Tech's golf course.
Officials say they believe the contractors were tying into an existing sewer line when something went wrong Thursday. They were unconscious, trapped underground for close to 30 minutes before finally being pulled out by Atlanta firefighters.
"What made it tough was is that we had about 30 inches wide at the top," said Atlanta Fire Capt. Chip Newell." So on the bottom it flared out a little bit to maybe about four feet."
Being on the golf course presented another challenge.
