Two men have been taken to hospital following an apparent trench collapse at a job site in the Don Valley Village neighbourhood Monday afternoon.

Emergency crews were called to a residence under construction on Goodview Road off Don Mills Road around 3:30 p.m.

Toronto Paramedics tell CityNews that a man had become trapped inside the trench and had to be extricated. He was transported to a local hospital with minor injuries.

A second man, who had fallen into the trench, suffered more serious injuries and was taken to a trauma centre.

The Ministry of Labour has been called in to investigate.
