HOUSTON (AP) — One worker has been killed and another hurt after the ground collapsed during repairs on a broken water main in the Houston area.

The Harris County Sheriff’s Office on Friday announced the trapped worker was dead at the scene. Authorities say another worker was extricated Thursday night but has unknown injuries.

The accident happened in northwest Harris County as the two workers went into a hole to reach the water main, then the walls gave way.

Names of both victims and further details on the condition of the survivor weren’t immediately released.

Federal safety investigators have been notified about the accident.
