According to multiple reports, six workers were rescued from the collapse and taken to hospitals. The collapse happened across from the ballpark home to the MLB’s Houston Astros.
The area around Minute Maid Park has been ever evolving, especially along Crawford Street with a new apartment complex. The construction has taken over the block on Crawford St. between Texas Ave. and Preston St — so much so that it blocked the sidewalk on Crawford St.
Today, a tragedy happened at the construction site as the scaffolding at the construction collapsed — sending at least six people to the hospital, as reported by the Houston Chronicle.
A tourist captured the video of the caspase:

The video was captured in front of Minute Maid Park, the tourists were standing in area with Craig Biggio and Jeff Bagwell statues.
A terrifying video, watching seven stories of scaffolding falling on the workers. Thankful it appears that no lives were lost and thankfully it didn’t happen with more foot traffic with a playoff series.
