The patient was dug out by the construction crew and first responders.

The man was transported to the hospital in stable condition.

UPDATED: Early Monday evening, a 25-year-old West Jordan man was completely buried when a large section of earth gave way at the residential construction site where he was working.

The Park City Fire District and Summit County Sheriff's deputies responded to the accident, which occurred on Upper Evergreen Drive in Summit Park.

The man's coworkers had partially freed him before emergency services arrived. After first responders dug him out, PCFD said the man was transported to a hospital conscious, breathing, and alert in stable condition.

His current condition isn't known, but his injuries were not described as life-threatening.

The accident has been reported to OSHA, which is the federal occupational safety and health administration.
