Construction worker dies in NW DC

WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- A man is dead after a trench collapse at a construction site in Northwest, D.C. Tuesday morning, DC Fire said. 

The collapse happened on a construction site in the 4600 block of Dexter St. in Northwest, D.C., officials said.

The victim's body was removed from the trench on Wednesday. He has not been identified at this time. 

DC Fire have confirmed that this has now changed from a rescue operation to a recovery operation. Due to the unstableness of the trench, DC Fire says this will be an extended operation. 

Crews are trying to prevent any further collapses from happening.
