DURAND - Authorities in western Wisconsin say a trench wall collapsed in Pepin County, killing a 56-year-old man and a 2-year-old boy.

A news outlet says the sheriff's office responded to a call Saturday about 9:40 a.m.

They rushed to a property in the town of Waterville. They and other emergency officials were able to dig the bodies free but they couldn't revive the victims.

The victims' names haven't been released.
