An Abaconian man was injured on Saturday morning when sand collapsed on him while he and several others repaired a seawall at Nippers Beach Bar & Grill in Guana Cay.

The digging was to replace the braces for the seawall, but the sand collapsed, causing Damien Smith to be buried.

Defence Force Officers, police officers and community members dug and lifted Smith out of the hole.

Smith was transported by boat to the mainland where he was transported by ambulance to Marsh Harbour Clinic.

Last reports indicated that he is responsive and receiving further treatment.
