Excavator deep hole rescue

This one’s a bit hard to watch.

After a ledge gave way an sent this machine into a hole being dug for a pumping station, this excavator operator is assisted by co-workers with little to no result. Two excavators and a dozer aren’t able to tow the machine out, largely because it was the wrong strategy in the first place. Eventually he comes around and builds a ramp out, but only after a lot of shouting and frustration. Watch below and let us know how they should have handled this mess.
