Seven injured in Atlanta parking lot collapse

Atlanta parking lot collapse. A total of seven injured workers left a parking lot collapse in building in Atlanta, Georgia, after a first incident was reported on Friday and another the next day, the city’s Fire Department reported.

Last Saturday, a worker was injured and sent to Grady Memorial Hospital after another part of the platform fell. Workers were on site Saturday to clean up and try to shore up the building. OSHA, the government agency in charge of workplace accidents, was on the scene at the time of the second collapse.

Firefighters said the worker was standing on a large concrete beam when he collapsed, falling about 10 stories. The worker fell, sustaining serious but not fatal injuries.

“The worker suffered some major injuries to his lower extremities,” said Sgt. Cortez Stafford.

Stafford said some workers struggled to try to get him out from under the rubble, but firefighters were eventually able to get him out of the building.

West Peachtree Street is closed between Pine and Linden Avenue. The city of Atlanta ordered the construction company to stop its work until investigators can determine what is happening.

“Right now, the parking structure is compromised,” Stafford said. “There is no one in the structure, we pushed people back and closed the streets.”

According to WSB, this is the second incident in recent years in Midtown involving worker injuries or deaths on a project by the same company.

Baston Cook Construction tweeted that they were responsible for the construction of one of Atlanta’s largest parking lots in June. The platform at Emory Midtown is slated to have 16 floors with 3,000 parking spaces and 16,000 square feet of retail space.

Records show the company paid more than a $ 12,000 fine for a 2017 accident that killed a 20-year-old construction worker at a Midtown hospital. At the time, the president of the company told WSB that it was a concrete installation.

A decade earlier, two construction workers from the company were unconscious at the bottom of a 25-foot-deep culvert in Forsyth County, Georgia. One died and the other was hospitalized.

In an informal settlement, records show the company paid a $ 5,000 fine to OSHA linked to a training violation.

In another case, the construction company is also collaborating with OSHA investigators in Virginia after a crane collapse at a construction site in downtown Charlottesville earlier this year.
