Two construction workers were rushed to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital this morning after they suffered a fall off a scaffold.  The incident occurred at Ground Zero, corner Queen and North Front Streets.  The men are a part of a crew contracted to build the Belize Heritage Plaza. The two workers were reportedly on the second floor of the building, approximately 15-20 feet high. According to the Project Director, John Arana, an investigation is being conducted to find out how the incident occurred.

John Arana, Project Director: “From the reports we have that they are in reasonable health and they are being reviewed by the doctors, x rays and the normal triage that is done. On one of them there was a scrape on the chest area and the other one no external injuries but x rays are being done to confirm that internally there was no damage. Prior to the incident we utilized scaffolding, we utilized safety helmets, vests, and we have the perimeter of the compound secured, they also have Social Security and the contractor has all risk insurance. We are concerned about what occurred and we are taking measures with additional safety measures such as harnesses and other items that are recommended.”

The two men were not severely injured but they are still being monitored by doctors to see if any further injuries arise.  The Belize Heritage Plaza is one of the projects from the Downtown Rejuvenation Project.
