Three-Ton Beam Falls on Wichita Construction Worker

KSAL StaffOctober 28, 2014

A construction worker is hospitalized in serious condition after a 3-ton steel beam fell on him at Wichita Mid-Continent Airport.

The Wichita Eagle reports the 25-year-old man was alert and responsive when emergency crews arrived shortly after 8 a.m. Tuesday. The accident took place at the site where a new parking garage is being built.

A spokeswoman for the Wichita Airport Authority says co-workers quickly removed the 48-foot-long girder off the man with a forklift. The man works for Crossland Construction.

He was taken to Via Christi Hospital St. Francis.
