GREENWICH - One man is dead and another hospitalized this morning after a trench collapsed at a construction site in Greenwich.

Greenwich fire officials say the victim, Eric Chinchilla, was crushed to death while doing renovations at a home on MacPherson Drive.

Officials say accidents like this one aren't uncommon. There are a lot of open trenches in Greenwich; if they're not protected properly, these kinds of things can happen.

Police say another worker was taken to the hospital for minor injuries and the accident is under investigation.
