MIAMI (CBSMiami) — Three workers were injured Thursday morning while on the job at a construction site in northwest Miami-Dade county.
Miami-Dade Fire Rescue was called out shortly after 10 a.m. regarding a construction accident where two cranes failed for some unknown reason and then fell.
Rescue workers are at the site located near NW 57th Avenue and Blue Lagoon Drive.
Chopper4 was over the scene where three people were being treated on backboards at a building under construction.
The workers were loaded onto the fire ladder and lowered down to the ground then taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital. Their condition is unknown at this time.
It’s unknown whether the workers were on the crane or near the crane at the time of the incident.
There are a lot of office buildings in the area and workers were out watching the scene unfold.
“It was crazy. There was a big accident. The things just fell. Oh my gosh. I was so worried. I am so happy that it wasn’t serious. It could have really gotten bad,” said Lisa Daniels who watched the rescue.
