5 Construction Workers Injured When Support Post Collapses

Orlando, FL -- Five construction workers were injured when a support post collapsed while they were pouring concrete.

It appears the injuries were a result of the workers falling during the collapse.  Three construction workers were taken to the hospital for treatment, and two were treated at the scene.  An additional worker fell 10 feet, but did not have any injuries.

When the post collapsed, the Orlando Fire Department used a bucket truck to rescue the workers from the building.

The construction site is the future location of the Hyatt House.
