22 people were injured with 16 taken to a hospital after two cranes became entangled. One person had a serious injury and the others had minor ones.
Commander Benavides said, when they arrived they did not find a collapse, he said, but "more of a two-crane collision.”
Battalion Chief Mark Bridges said the bases of the cranes were stable, but entangled by wires at the top. The accident took place at a mixed-use development called the Mueller complex in East Austin.
A worker who died on January 14, 2021 after a trench collapsed at a construction site in Greeley has been identified by the Weld County's
Coroner's Office as 59-year-old Jay Froshaug. The Longmont resident was in a trench when the dirt wall collapsed, the Greely Police Department
(GPD) said. An ambulance transported Froshaug to a local hospital, where he later died. The worker was in a trench when the dirt wall collapsed
around him, according to police.
They were tapping into the sewer line to connect it into one of the parcels for one of the homes, and unfortunately, that's when the
collapse happened. Two workers were buried in the trench, which was about 8 feet deep. Their fellow workers tried to rescue the men,
but couldn't get to them. Unfortunately there was just too much dirt. Crews are working to recover the bodies, but it could take hours.
