Two construction workers have been taken to the hospital after they were injured this morning in an accident at a parking garage under construction at the intersection of First Avenue and King Street.
The two men were working on the roof of the structure when they were struck by a wall of rebar. One worker suffered moderate to serious injuries while the second man’s injuries weren’t as serious, according to the Seattle Fire Department. Neither man’s injuries are considering life-threatening.
The Fire Department’s Technical Rescue Team had to bring the men down using ropes and pulleys, said spokesman Kyle Moore.
