Two Workers Injured at Demolition Site


In St. Louis County, two demolition workers were injured and hospitalized after a stairwell collapsed at the site of the Lindell Apartment Building.

On November 11, 2012 around 2:00 p.m., the Lindell Apartment Building was scheduled for demolition. July 17, 2012, the Lindell Apartment building was destroyed by a fire that left more than 250 residents homeless. No one was injured in the fire. The men were working Sunday at the site where the fire damaged the four-story unit apartment building.

During the demolition, a stairwell collapsed and trapped the two men for about 20 minutes before being transported to a hospital.

Tom McLain, first district battalion chief with the St. Louis Fire Department, said that after the two men were rescued from the rubble they were conscious and talking.
