San Francisco, CA — A construction accident at a high-rise site near San Francisco’s AT&T Park injured four construction workers Wednesday, August 31, 2011. The construction accident occurred just before 8 a.m. at a six-story building that is under construction at 19th and Illinois Streets, reported KTVU.
San Francisco fire officials reported that the construction accident occurred as the workers were pouring concrete on the roof of the building, when the roof support structure collapsed onto three workers, who were in the sixth floor stairwell. The impact caused the workers to fall three stories where they were covered in wet concrete.
Responding emergency crews rushed the injured workers to area hospitals for medical treatment. They were reportedly still conscious when help arrived and are considered to be in serious condition.
The fourth worker sustained minor injuries while trying to help the workers who fell. He was also taken to the hospital for medical attention in fair condition.
The injured construction workers are reportedly in their early 20s to late 30s; their identities have yet to be released.
The California Division of Occupational Safety and Health is conducting a full investigation into the construction.
