DONNA KELLEY, CNN ANCHOR: And from Arizona, some pictures here from our affiliate KTVK. We are getting reports from the Associated Press that one worker has been injured and another remains trapped in a trench that has collapsed here at this construction site that's in Chandler, Arizona.

They had 40 firefighters on the scene from several fire departments trying to rescue this person who is still trapped. The person they have gotten out is a 28-year-old man who apparently has suffered a possible fractured leg. The other man is still in what we believe -- or we are told -- is a 35-foot deep trench. He is 30 years old. His condition at this point is not known.

We will keep you posted on what may happen here.
