The boy was not injured in the 1:45 p.m. incident, Battalion Chief Amy Brow said.
The accident occurred near the construction site of the underground parking structure being built between Fifth Avenue and Division streets.
Brow said the boy was walking with his father when he stepped on a soft spot in the soil and fell in the hole. Firefighters and police responded after someone called 911.
The boy was given a harness that he attached to himself and was pulled out, Brow said. He was in the hole for about 10 minutes.
