April 26, 2005|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

A construction worker was in critical condition at Maryland Shock Trauma Center after being rescued yesterday afternoon from a mud-filled trench, a Baltimore County Fire Department official said.

The man, believed to be in his mid-50s and whose name was not released, was standing on a scaffold attached to a water pumping station under construction in the 700 block of Seneca Park Road in Bowleys Quarters about 3 p.m. when he fell at least 15 feet into a muddy trench, said Lt. Howard Thode, a communications division supervisor.

Thode said the county's cave-in rescue squad from Perry Hall and other units responded.
