The project collapsed around noon on Wednesday as the crew was setting roof trusses.

The station reported two of the four contract workers were airlifted to Holston Valley Medical Center in Kingsport, Tenn., and two others taken to Pikeville Medical Center.

The workers' names weren't immediately available.
