A construction crew was working at the site of the new Provo High School at 1300 N. Lakeshore Drive when the accident occurred. Two men were helping set up an I-beam on the new school when the beam failed, causing the workers to fall to the ground.
The Daily Herald reports that the men fell about 30 feet. Both men remained conscious throughout the aftermath of the fall, but they sustained injuries to their arms. Nobody else at the site was injured in the accident.
The cause of the fall or the I-beam failure is unclear at this time, reports the Daily Herald.
