Shreveport Construction Site Collapse Injures Nine Workers

 Monday, April 11, 2016


Nine workers were pulled from a collapsed building on a hospital construction site in Shreveport Friday morning. Shreveport Fire Chief Scott Wolverton said 18 workers have all been accounted for at the site. None of the injuries are believed to be life-threatening. A Shreveport Fire Department Urban Rescue team was called to the scene, but Wolverton said there was "no lengthy extrication required on any patient" when they arrived. Most were taken to Willis-Knighton North on site, but Wolverton said some were taken to other area hospitals due to the sheer number of casualties.
