San Antonio Parking Garage Collapses Injuring Two Workers

Two people were hospitalized in San Antonio today when a parking structure that was under construction collapsed. There were more than 100 workers in the structure at the time; they began to quickly evacuate as soon as they heard a rumbling sound. Others were alerted by an alarm.

All but two of the people who were working on the garage were able to escape without injury. One of the two is in stable condition; the other, however, is in critical condition.

The building industry is notoriously dangerous, and construction accidents are not uncommon. The workers were somewhat lucky, though, because the parking structure was being built for the San Antonio University Hospital.

Neither the reason for the collapse nor the reasons for the injuries are publicly known. It is likely that the workers could have been injured by a falling object.
