A construction accident occurred recently in Maitland, Florida when three men who were doing concrete work lost their footing after the scaffolding came loose from the building. The workers were left dangling in the air six stories above the ground while emergency rescue crews worked to help them down.
Fortunately, none of the construction workers were injured, though they were a bit shaken up by the incident. Two of the men refused medical treatment, while the crane operator was taken to the hospital as a precaution.
The cause of the construction accident is under investigation.
