ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) - A construction worker in his 60's was rushed to a local hospital Tuesday morning after the roof of a park pavilion collapsed in Tower Grove Park.
The accident happened near the intersection of South Grand and Magnolia.
A tweet from St. Louis firefighters said the worker was injured but not trapped.
The man was replacing a joist in the pavilion roof when he fell 15-feet to the ground. The roof then collapsed and fell on top of him.
Co-workers say the man fell fifteen feet onto the concrete ground injuring his head, but say his injuries did not appear to be life threatening.
