Firefighters rescue three construction workers after partial roof collapse at USask


Earlier this week, rescue personnel were dispatched to the University of Saskatchewan after receiving a 911 call reporting a partial roof collapse on campus. The crew rescued three construction workers, who had been conducting selective demolition work at USask’s Murray Library when the roof collapsed. The three workers sustained non-life-threatening injuries, for which they were transported to and received treatment from the hospital; other workers present on the scene were found safe. According to The Canadian Press, the incident is now under investigation by the province’s Occupational Health and Safety unit.
