Scaffold Collapse in Raleigh NC kills 3, injures at least one other

A scaffold platform fell from a construction site in Raleigh North Carolina yesterday as workers for the scaffolding company were  dismantling it.  The scaffold platform was 11 stories up and crashed into the Charter Square Project below. It is thought that four workers were on the scaffold at the time. Another workers was thought to be in the portable toilet when a piece of the scaffolding crushed it.

It is unclear at this time who was killed and where they were at the time of the accident.

Part of the scaffolding crashed through the glass wall of the building across the street, sticking out and hanging over the street below.

The collapse occured as employees of Associated Scaffolding were working on dismantling the mast climbers which is used to get workers up and down on the scaffold.
