Firefighters Rescue 86-Year-Old Man After Basement Wall Collapses (VIDEO)

An 86-year-old man is recovering today after he was trapped under a collapsed basement wall last night on Briggs Road in Silver Spring.

Fire and Rescue Spokesperson Pete Piringer said firefighters extricated the man from the rubble and transported him to a local hospital.

Piringer said the wall apparently collapsed during last night’s strong storms. He said a building inspector was called to inspect the structure, and that the family who lives there is now displaced.
