Manchester Fire Department: Excavator Falls Into Basement During Demolition

An excavator fell to the basement of a building that was being demolished Wednesday afternoon, according to the Manchester fire department.

The excavator fell through a hole in the former Carter Chevrolet building at the corner of Charter Oak and Main Streets.

The operator was transported to a hospital with minor injuries, the fire department said.

The Cherry Hill Construction company worked to remove the excavator from the partly demolished building Wednesday evening, officials said.

The building is being demolished to make way for a 14,600-square-foot CVS pharmacy and a smaller building. Plans for the demolition and the new structures were approved by the town’s planning and zoning commission in 2014.
