Update: 1 Worker, 2 Pedestrians Hit in Scaffolding Collapse
This story is an update on a story from earlier today. This is a new and developing story.
Three people were hurt when a 20-foot section of scaffolding fell onto a Brooklyn sidewalk.
Crews were working on taking apart large metal rods and panels at around 11 in the morning on Saturday when the scaffolding collapse near Brooklyn Borough Hall.
The scaffolding hit one worker and two pedestrians and caused injury to all three of them.
A witness, Jennifer Harvey, has this to say about the accident, ““We just all of a sudden heard a crashing of the scaffolding, and then people screaming.”
The worker was the most seriously injured. All three of the injured people are expected to recover.
The incident caused trains out of the Borough Hall subway station to be shut down while crews removed debris.
