Construction Accident at UNCG Injures Two

Two demolition subcontractors were hospitalized on Wednesday, May 26 after an accident occured while working at the University of North Carolina Greensboro campus.

Construction began on the Foust and Guilford residence hall this May as the spring semester ended and students left for summer.  Renovations were set to include refurbishing bathrooms, replacing windows, and upgrading the fire alarm system.

Unfortunately during the construction of these renovations, two men were injured after part of the first floor celing of Mary Foust Hall collapsed.  The men, who were working with Clean Air Environment, were rushed to the hospital by Guilford County EMS and fire officials around 3 PM with injuries to the legs and back.
