Texas Equine Center Collapse Injures 4

13 emergency units responded to the construction accident

Monday, June 24, 2013


COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — Four workers were hurt, three critically, after a barn frame collapsed Saturday at an $80 million Texas A&M University equestrian complex that's under construction.

College Station and Bryan fire departments, campus police and Texas A&M emergency medical personnel all responded to the accident, which happened shortly before 11 a.m. Saturday.

The injured workers were transported to hospitals. Their names and further details on their conditions were not immediately released. Nobody else was hurt.

Because of concerns about another collapse, emergency responders had to suspend the search for the four until the remaining structure could be stabilized.

The collapse could be heard miles away, according to local media reports.
