Sept. 19: Building Collapse Injures Three Workers
A partially built tank shop, which holds large lobster tanks, collapsed when trusses came down. A construction worker fell from the roof and was trapped in the trusses. It took firefighters 45 minutes to cut through the wooden beams with reciprocating saws to get to him. He was taken to the hospital with serious injuries, while two other workers received minor injuries. So far, it’s unclear what caused the trusses to collapse.
