Video: Phillies groundskeeper gets lost under massive tarp

A heavy downpour of rain nearly resulted in the suffocation of one of the Phillies grounds crew members on Thursday.

Watch as the grounds crew jumps into action at Citizens Bank Park by pulling the massive tarp over the infield as quickly as possible.

However, one of the crew members, who was covering the pitcher's mound at the time, found himself in the line of fire and was subsequently caught underneath. As you can see, the crew kept pulling the tarp across the field, leaving the poor soul trapped for over 30 seconds before he was finally able to escape to freedom.

Whew. Close call.
