About 2 weeks ago, 2 construction workers were injured from falling from a height of around 15 feet at a construction site at Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina.
The construction workers were installing rebar at a project to expand the Plemmons Student Union building and construct a new 10-story residence hall and 3-story annex. Reports indicate that a concrete structure at the construction site broke at the base causing the men to fall and land on some steel rebar.
The two injured construction workers were taken to Watauga Medical Center in an ambulance and were later transferred to Johnson City Medical Center in a helicopter. One of the workers was listed as being in fair condition the morning after the accident and the other was released from the hospital.
