The victims had to be lowered from the construction site.
Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Chief Jeff Strickland, said: “We evaluate our options on how we’re going to get them back to grade…This one we chose to bring in our 100-foot platform truck and put the patients in a stokes basket, stabilized them, put them on our aerial hydraulic platform and brought them down to the ground.”
Two workers were seriously injured and were rushed to Jackson Memorial Hospital. A third was taken to Kendall Regional Medical Center. Their condition is unknown at this time.
The cause of the collapse is being investigated.
