Authorities say that a worker trapped in a Durham construction site trench collapse has died.

Durham Fire Department Deputy Chief Chris Iannuzzi said in a news release that the worker's body was recovered from the trench late Wednesday afternoon.

Iannuzzi told reporters that four workers were in the trench when it collapsed. Three were rescued or made it out.

The identity of the worker who was killed wasn't immediately released. News helicopters showed footage of dozens of first responders working at the construction site for a gas station in Durham near Raleigh.
