A Disneyland Resort construction subcontractor this morning was taken to the hospital for back pain after falling into a trench in an employee-only area inside Disneyland, fire officials said.

The man was working on a trench, which was up to 5-feet deep, when he fell in this morning before the park opened, said Maria Sabol, an Anaheim Fire Department spokeswoman.

About 14 firefighters responded to the scene after the call came in about 8:41 a.m. The man was conscious, but complained about back pain. He was taken out on a back board, Sabol said.

The injuries appeared to be minor, said Suzi Brown, a Disneyland Resort spokeswoman.

Search and rescue officials also responded because they specialize in trench rescues.

The operation took about 45 minutes.

The accident area was near New Orleans Square. Disneyland was ready to open as scheduled at 10 a.m., Brown said.
