(Oklahoma City-AP) -- Firefighters are trying to rescue a man trapped in a cave-in in Oklahoma City.

Major Brian Stanaland says the 30-year-old man is believed to be trapped under nine to ten feet of dirt at a construction site about a mile-and-a-half south of Interstate 40 in western Oklahoma City.

Stanaland says the man was part of a crew working to install a sewer line for a building under construction. He says the man was in a trench that began to cave in just after 11 this morning.

The man jumped to another area and was completely buried.

Stanaland says rescuers have not made contact with the man.
