CSW BREAKING: Construction Mishap Injures 3 in KC-MO

A scaffold collapsed at a building undergoing renovations in Midtown KC-MO- injuring 3 people.

The incident occurred about 11:35 a.m. Thursday morning at 6301 Rockhill Road.

KC-MO FD-EMS reports that a scaffolding collapsed- with at least one worker plunging "from a 3rd-story to a 1st-floor roof" of the building.

The most serious injury was said to be a Hispanic male- "46-year-s-old" who was taken to a nearby hospital in serious condition from his injuries.

Two others injured at the site were said to have mostly minor injuries.

The fire department (and no doubt OSHA) were investigating the incident.
