Fire rescue teams in Phoenix, Avondale and Glendale helped rescue a man who fell in a 14-foot trench early Saturday morning.

Fire officials say the man had been walking in an area near 103rd Avenue and Indian School late Friday night when he fell. When firefighters found him, he was in stable condition but was experiencing some chest pain.

"Crews lowered a rope to go around the man’s body and a ladder, and then assisted in raising him out of the trench," officials said.

He was taken to the hospital for further treatment. No other injuries were reported.
