Crane tips over injuring two workers near St. Louis

Two workers were injured when a 70-foot-tall crane tipped over at Mercy Hospital St. Louis as workers were preparing to move the equipment.

The two injured workers were taken into the hospital after the incident, at about 11:45. The condition, although not believed to be serious, is currently unknown.

Creve Coeur Deputy Fire Marshal Jerry McQueen said the crane was at the northeast part of the hospital property, away from the hospital structure, when it tipped over. Workers were preparing to move the rubber-tired crane to move it when it toppled.

McQueen said authorities were waiting on heavy construction equipment to be brought in to lift and secure the crane.
