Tinley Park Box Alarm for 2 people trapped in a hole Auto aid from Oak Forest and Flossmoor at 18307 White Oak Ct

The Chicago Sun-Times reported:

Two girls playing in a deep excavation hole in their subdivision in Tinley Park were rescued and not seriously injured Sunday afternoon after a wall of mud caved in and buried them. … when one of them touched the mud wall and it collapsed, covering the girls. Sarah was completely covered in the dirt, but Nicole’s head was above ground.

A pocket of air surrounded Sarah, so she could still breathe and talk to rescue workers, according to Nicole’s father, Robert Salwierak. Rescue workers told him it was a “perfect scenario” for the girls to be alive.

It took rescue workers about a half hour to use their hands, shovels and poles to extract the girls from the mud, witnesses said. The girls were taken to Silver Cross Hospital in New Lenox after the incident for treatment, but they suffered no serious injuries, according to Assistant Fire Chief Steve Klotz of the Tinley Park Fire Department.
