TEMPLE, TX (KXXV) -

A City of Temple Public Works employee is safe after he was trapped in a cave-in in South Temple on Friday morning. 

Around 10:30 a.m., the employee was working on a water line break on Midway Drive when a section of the soil gave way and trapped him up to the mid-calf area of his legs, Temple Fire and Rescue said. 

The employee was freed by coworkers. He was evaluated by Temple EMS and refused an offer of medical transport.
