FOSTORIA — A man working to shore up a set of concrete steps at a North Main Street house was pinned for about an hour when the ground beneath him collapsed, Fostoria fire Lt. Brian Herbert said.
Rescue crews used air bags and cribbing to lift the concrete steps off Brad Zink, 51, of Fostoria. He was taken to Fostoria Community Hospital and later flown to Toledo Hospital, where he was in serious condition Thursday.
Lieutenant Herbert said a construction crew was at 930 North Main just after 8 p.m. Wednesday, digging beneath the steps to pour a concrete foundation, when the ground gave way. Mr. Zink was extricated about 8:50.
