While working in a trench Tuesday afternoon, a construction worker was hit in the back of the head with a cable in a construction accident in Lake Stevens.
Though his injuries were not considered life threatening, crews rescued the man from the trench and took him to the hospital. The injured man works for Plats Plus Inc., a Marysville construction company.
At about 1:30pm, the man was injured while working with a crew installing sewer extensions along 81st Avenue NE near Highway 204 west of Lake Stevens. Company spokesman Paul Nolan said that while working inside a concrete box, a cable splice broke and hit him in the back of the head.
According to Marysville Fire Department spokeswoman Stephanie Price, police and firefighters from across the county were called to rescue the man from the trench, which was 30 to 35 feet deep.
Price said the cause of the accident is unclear but investigators are looking into it.
