Two people were rescued and rushed to a hospital in critical condition Tuesday after they were involved in an accident at a Queens construction site, FDNY officials said.
It happened on 28th Road by 33rd Street in Astoria a little after 3:30 p.m.
One person was seen being pulled from the building on a stretcher. The construction materials punched through the roof and fell all the way down to the basement level, the FDNY said. Two of the victims were removed from the rubble and rushed to Elmhurst Hospital in critical condition, but firefighters had to extricate the third from the basement of the building.
The third worker was being loaded into an ambulance as of 5:38 p.m.
