The Daily Routine Can Change Suddenly

We all go about our day...usually, it's the same sort of routine at work. You find something that works for you...that works for work...and it just becomes your "normal workday".

Unfortunately, any "normal" workday can take an unexpected turn...

An injured worker was rescued after falling into an eight-foot trench at a job site in San Ramon Wednesday morning, according to police.

Police said the intersection of Omega and Purdue roads were closed at 11:10 a.m. while firefighters rescued the injured worker, who was awake but experiencing back pain.

Firefighters had to stabilize the sides of the trench - which was approximately eight feet deep by 50 feet long - to extract the man, according to police. He was successfully removed and taken to the hospital in an ambulance just before noon.

This injured worker was going about his normal workday routine when this freak accident occurred.

Since he was well within the normal scope of his job, he is definitely still eligible to receive full workers' compensation benefits.
