TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A Tucson woman was taken to a local hospital after reportedly falling about 10 feet into a trench.

Firefighters were called to the area near First Avenue and Glenn Street just after 1 p.m. on Friday.

The construction crew on scene performed the appropriate shoring practices to ensure the trench would not collapse. Tucson Fire crews reached the patient by climbing down a ladder. They secured her to a spine board as a precaution, slid the board up the ladder and took her to the hospital in stable condition.

Tucson Police arrived on scene to investigate.

TFD says to look out for barricades and safety tape as warnings around trenches. The department said the trench was properly marked.
