    Recently I responded to two men in a trench, because of the width after the collapse we preformed much of the digging from inside a sewer pipe and used an air knife and the rescue Vac extensively. One survived and one passed on.
    I really don't want to ramble because it wasn't my jurisdiction, I was part of a regional team that responded

    The author is the authority on soil reduction and removal, these are the tools that were utilized on the rescue and recovery
