At about 11 A.M. on Friday, October 16th, 2015, a scaffolding accident occurred at a construction site at an apartment
building located at 300 Crawford at Commerce in Houston, Texas. The collapse
resulted in large metal pieces falling on the pavement located below the
apartment building. Reports state that several individuals were and may
still be trapped under the debris.
Several victims have been removed from the wreckage and have received medical
attention in nearby hospitals. While reports state most of the injuries
that occurred are not life threatening, many believe there may be other
victims still trapped under the scaffolding rubble.
The captain of the Houston Fire Department states there it is high probability
of a second collapse. Fire fighters are working hard to protect the area
and are forcing onlookers to back away from the scene in case of a secondary downfall.
Currently, at least 30 units are on the scene. Investigators and other
law enforcement officers are working hard to calculate the amount of workers
that were on the site versus the amount of persons removed from the debris.
