Worker now in fair condition after A&M barn collapse

Posted:
COLLEGE STATION -

Four workers have been sent to the hospital after a partially constructed building collapsed on the Texas A&M campus.

All workers were men and Tim Ottinger with St. Joseph Hospital in Bryan says one 32 year old was treated and released on Saturday. Two 22 year olds were in the hospital over night but the hospital released them on Sunday afternoon. The 35 year old man was listed in critical condition for more than 24 hours, but as of Sunday night is listed in fair condition.

A 300 foot long barn building under construction on 3500 F&B road collapsed shortly before 11 Saturday morning injuring those four construction workers.

When fire departments got to the scene they found the workers in the collapsed area. All four, three considered critically injured at the time, were rescued from the collapsed area and taken to the hospital by 11:20.

"See I'm a construction worker and that looks like a lot of scrap metal now. Cause its all going to have to be replaced. Its not going to be able to be used now. They'll have to figure out how they are going to take it apart without somebody getting hurt," College Station resident Justin Court said.

The barn is part of the new Equine Center that started construction in October, 2012. The $80 million dollar project hoped to provide a home for equine science education, research, and outreach.

Crews waited to ensure the structure was safe to make a secondary search to see if anyone was still trapped. When they were able to go inside, no other workers were found and the scene was considered secure by just before noon.

Gamma Construction is investigating what caused the collapse.
