TEXARKANA, AR (KSLA) -

A man became trapped when a track hoe overturned Saturday afternoon.

It happened just before 2 p.m. in the 4400 block of 9th Street in Texarkana, Ark.

The man, whose name has not been released, was using the Case track hoe to help clean out a pond behind a residence. 

A nephew of his was operating a bulldozer at the same location.

When the injured man complained that he couldn't breathe, firefighters and the nephew broke out the glass on the track hoe cab to get to him.

The man has since been taken to a hospital. 

Further details, including the extent of his injuries, are not yet available.
