A timber worker was rescued Tuesday after getting stuck overnight 20 feet down a sinkhole in Grays Harbor County. It happened in a logging area off W. Satsop Road, about six and a half miles northwest of the town of Brady. According to Grays Harbor Fire District 2, the man was out surveying on Monday and marking areas that could be prone to sinkholes when one opened up and he fell in. The man tried to climb out, but wasn't able to get out. He was also in an area where there was no cell phone service so he wasn't able to call anyone. He did have a whistle, which he used, but it wasn't heard by anyone since he was working alone.
