Three laborers employed by the Bureau of Power and Light were seriously injured when the walls of a sixteen-foot ditch collapsed. It is speculated that the timberwork used to support the dirt was not strong enough. The victims were John M. Burns, who suffered a crushed chest and laceration about the head and face, Robert Rosenthal, who suffered contusions of the head, lacerations of the arms, and a possible spinal injury, and Bernard Glennin, who sustained internal injuries and a sprained shoulder.
Similar photograph appears with the article, "Three Men, All Hurt, Saved from Ditch Cave-in Death," Los Angeles Times, 24 Apr 1937: A1.
Several men stand in the ditch working at the dirt with shovels. Other men stand on the edge of the ditch, the one closest to the camera holding a shovel as he watches.
