A timber worker who fell down a 20-foot sinkhole in Grays Harbor County this week spent the night there before crews rescued him Tuesday.
KOMO reports the incident happened in a logging area near the town of Brady. On Monday, the man was surveying areas prone to sinkholes alone when one opened up and he fell in.
A co-worker arrived Tuesday morning and called for help after finding the man’s truck still running.
According to Olympia Fire Department, the man spent the night in a cavern created by an underground stream before crews including the Thurston County Special Operations Rescue Team were able to get him out.
