BRAZORIA COUNTY, Texas – A freak accident in Rosharon has left a man dead.

He was called out for an emergency repair on a cable line near County Road 58 at Almeda after it was accidentally cut by a construction company.

The man was in a 15-foot hole when it collapsed around 9 p.m. His co-workers tried to save him, but they couldn’t get to him in time.

It took emergency workers eight hours to pull the man’s body to the surface.
