EDINA, MN (AP) - Rescue crews have freed a worker trapped by a slab of concrete at a construction site in Edina.
 
A man working on an addition to a home was pinned after a dirt wall collapsed inside a trench Wednesday morning. Edina spokeswoman Kaylin Martin says the man's leg was pinned by a chunk of concrete about 4 feet by 5 feet.
 
The Star Tribune (http://bit.ly/KDqtJn) says the worker was trapped about 21/2 hours before he was freed and put on a stretcher. He was taken by ambulance to HCMC, where he was treated and released.
 
The worker's name was not released.
