Body of construction worker recovered

 EDMOND, Okla. (AP) _ The body of a construction worker who was trapped in a collapsed trench in Edmond has been recovered.
Deputy Fire Chief Chris Denton says the body of 37-year-old Roberto Garcia Ochoa of Oklahoma City was found about midnight Friday and was recovered from the trench about 2:15 a.m. Saturday.
Investigators say Ochoa was working on a sewer pipe in east Edmond when the estimated 20-feet deep trench collapsed about 4:20 p.m. Friday. Ochoa was trapped under several feet of dirt.
The body was sent to the state medical examiner's office to determine the cause of death.
