Rochester, NY(WROC)-  Brighton fire crews rescued a Brighton schools staff member from a hole this morning.  The Superintendent tells us the man fell in the hole that leads to the basement of the district office.
The fire chief says he's about 10 feet down.  He was working on a capital improvement project in the front entrance at the time.  The man has only minor injuries.
The superintendent says that part of the basement is accessible but EMT's didn't want him to walk out on his own.  The man was transported to Strong Hospital with minor injuries.
