Mapleton, ND (WDAY TV) - A 32-year-old man is recovering Thursday night after being partially buried when a 17-foot trench collapsed in Mapleton.

Authorities got a call to Knutson Street just after 2.

He was taken to a local hospital with a broken leg.

Loy was working for Kuechle Underground, based out of Kimball, Minnesota.

OSHA will investigate the accident.
