A chain-link fence with barbed wire fell and trapped a man Thursday afternoon knocking him unconscious as emergency crews worked to free him.

Authorities were dispatched to West Cesar Chavez St and South Comal St just before 5 p.m. Thursday to find a man stuck beneath a fence. The fire department freed him and the man was taken to University Hospital in unknown condition.

Witnesses said the man was fixing a fence that would not open.

The incident is still under investigation.
