Six construction workers were injured Wednesday when a large piece of steel rebar fell from a crane and impaled two workers at a Miami construction site.
Emergency crews had to cut through the steel to free some of the workers. Three were able to wriggle out on their own.
The two workers who were impaled by the steel were rushed to the hospital and listed in critical condition.
“Something malfunctioned and it came loose,” Miami Fire Rescue Lt. Pete Sanchez told the Miami Herald. “The two trapped under the rubble were impaled by rebar in their upper body. We cut them out.”
The accident happened 11:10 at a construction site for an office building.
