Dog barking alerts owner to man trapped nearby during accident in South Sioux City

South Sioux City Fire, EMS and Police responded to the 3600 Block of Le Mesa Way in South Sioux City about 2:45 pm on Wednesday after a 911 call was received reporting a man was trapped in collapsed dirt at a construction site.

Responders were able to free the man who walked out of the trench on his own and was transported to the hospital for further evaluation.

I'm told that a dog, "Remo" barking alerted their owner that something was wrong. When they went outside they heard the man yelling for help and called 911 to report the incident.
