Rescue crews recovered the bodies of two men killed when the trench they were digging suddenly caved in on Monday, police said.
Some time around noon, a large trench, near Rossland and Westney roads in Ajax, Ont. collapsed, injuring two male workers and burying two others.
A large number of firefighters and heavy excavating equipment was brought to the scene, with crews slowly digging and reinforcing the edge of the trench through the night.
By about 2:30 a.m. Tuesday, the bodies of the two missing workers were found and retrieved.
An Ontario Ministry of Labour investigation into what caused the collapse is ongoing.
