WORKERS in Baltimore have been left clinging on for their lives from scaffolding as a blast and roof collapse.
Nine people are in critical condition and one is in serious condition, according to fire officials.
The incident took place on Wednesday[/caption]
BGE released a statement, saying: “On Wednesday, Dec. 23, a construction-related incident occurred at BGE’s offices at 2 Center Plaza in downtown Baltimore. Construction work was occurring on the building’s air handling and boiler system, which likely caused the incident. Three people were treated for non-life-threatening injuries as a result of that incident. The building was largely empty due to the upcoming holidays and the pandemic. Window washing scaffolding was compromised because of the incident and a window washing crew was pulled to safety by the fire department. Fire department and BGE crews are on scene.”
