SAN DIEGO — Authorities say a scaffolding collapse at a San Diego building site has injured four construction workers, three of them seriously.
Fire officials say the men were hanging drywall in an unfinished apartment building near Petco Park Wednesday morning when the scaffolding collapsed and they tumbled 16 feet to the ground.
City Battalion Chief Glen Holder tells KSWB-TV that a worker was treated at the scene for minor injuries. Three others were taken to a hospital for treatment of serious trauma and Holder says at least one of those men had life-threatening injuries.
The cause of the accident is under investigation.
