Trackhoe Accident! Excavator Fell into Hole! Two Excavators and a Dozer to Rescue! Caterpillar

While digging a deep hole for a pumping station, apparently the ledge gave way and down she went!  These types of incidents are why it's so hard to get into heavy equipment operation without years of experience.  These are stick pullers, not operators. I'm glad this was captured on video so everyone can see NOT how to recover an excavator!  I have NEVER seen such a group of non operators in my entire life. They have 2 excavators destroying the one in the hole by ripping it apart, instead of first taking 15 minutes digging a simple ramp so he could track himself out with no problem. I thought that I was an idiot when I got stuck in a ditch with the excavator. I can see there are worse operators out there. They are making this so dang complicated. Not only could he dig himself out, but it could happen 3x faster if the other two start digging out a ramp as well.  It would appear that there is a level of cluelessness with those machine operators. Any good operator would drive the excavator out of that hole without any issues.  This may not seem obvious at first but the counterweight was tuck inside the hole. That prevented the excavator from being able to move its boom sideways and digg dirt out the way to create a path. Either way, all they needed was one track to lock bucket with the one in the hole and give it leverage to track out the hole.  That guy yelling like he knows it all was making very poor decisions...those buckets could have busted the tracks off very easily....
