Workers hurt in collapse of building frame in NW Iowa

LARRABEE, Iowa (AP) — Five workers were injured Tuesday in the collapse of a building that was under construction in the tiny northwest Iowa community of Larrabee, according to the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office.

One member of a construction crew was flown to a hospital with serious injuries and another was taken by ambulance to a hospital for more minor injuries, the sheriff’s office said. Three workers were treated for minor injuries.

The sheriff’s office didn’t release names of those hurt.

Workers were building a frame for a machine shop when the structure collapsed.

Larrabee is a city of 120 people, about 50 miles northeast of Sioux City.
