Several floors of a building came crashing down during construction in Boston. 

Authorities have reported that two workers were injured.  One worker suffered minor injuries, while the other worker had more serious injuries that required surgery.

Tufts Medical Center has confirmed that one patient who was injured from the collapse was released.

Deputy Fire Chief Robert Calobrisi said that the collapse was caused by a "dead load" that caused the floors to "pancake."

Crews have not identified what fell yet, but they believe it dropped from a crane.  There were 120 workers on the scene at the time of the collapse.
