Construction Workers Injured in Fall
Two adult male workers fell approximately 20 feet while working in a 4-story building being constructed.
At about 11:30 am Prince Georges County Firefighters and Paramedics from the Beltsville/Laurel area responded to the Brickyard Square construction site near the intersection of Muirkirk Road and Old Baltimore Pike.
The two workers fell 2 levels and sustained potentially serious injuries. Paramedics treated and transported both patients to a Trauma Center with non-life threatening injuries. A third adult male worker was hit by falling debris but did not go to the hospital.
The cause of the fall is unknown at this time.
