    BRADY, Wash. - A timber worker was helped out of a 20-foot sinkhole after he fell in Monday and couldn’t get out.

    The Thurston County Special Operations Rescue Team was called to Grays Harbor County near the town of Brady Tuesday after a coworker called for help after finding the man’s truck still running, according to the Olympian. 

    Olympia firefighters say the man spent the night in a cavern created by an underground stream.

    Once rescuers put a ladder down the hole, the man was able to climb out on his own.

    He was not hurt.
