Heartland Fire & Rescue responded to reports of a person trapped in a hole in the 8000 block of Morocco Dr. in La Mesa Friday morning.  The resident, a 71 year old man, was digging a drainage line about four feet deep when a small boulder came loose and fell on top of him into his lap, pinning him inside the hole. 

Firefighters quickly used pry bars to free him from the boulder, and the patient was able to walk up a ladder to safety. He was evaluated by paramedics on scene and was transported to the hospital as a precaution.
