Authorities in central Pennsylvania say a trench collapse has killed one person.

Emergency officials say rescuers in Lancaster County were called to a construction site in Manheim Township at about 2 p.m. Tuesday.

Rescue crews responded and tried to get the person out, but about an hour later an official said the operation had shifted from a rescue to a recovery.

Authorities had no immediate word on the identity of the victim or how the accident happened.
