Two demolition workers injured in St. Louis building collapse
ST. LOUIS (AP) - Two demolition workers have suffered injuries after falling more than 30 feet at a job site near St. Louis University.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports the accident happened around noon Friday when part of the building they were dismantling collapsed.
Capt. Garon Mosby of the St. Louis Fire Department said fellow workers rescued the men. They had been removing bricks from the third floor when they fell to the basement.
Chuck Mace, of Davison Demolition, said he saw the building collapse. He said a few people helped the workers walk because they were "banged up."
Mosby said the workers were talking and alert when they were taken to hospitals for treatment. He described their conditions as "stable."
