The Plymouth County District Attorney's Office said that at 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Hanson Police received a 911 call reporting that a man was trapped at a construction site at 50 Dwight St. Hanson.

He was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the office District Attorney. Sky5 flew over the scene Wednesday afternoon and saw a trench dug directly alongside one end of the house, exposing much of the foundation. Part of the trench appears to have been dug and filled with water and officials appear to be focusing on the area that fell It has a large piece of concrete in the ditch. The Plymouth County Technical Rescue Team was called to the home in order to recover Faria's body.
