By Lindsey Anderson19 October 2015

Six workers had to be rescued from beneath the rubble of a massive scaffold collapse on Oct. 16 in Houston near Minute Maid Park.

The scaffolding crumbled and fell away from the seven-story building under construction in downtown Houston. No word has been said on what caused the accident.

The six injured workers were taken to the nearby hospital with non-fatal injuries. More than 200 workers were present on the scene when the collapse happened. The project is a $400 million, multi-story, luxury housing complex.

OSHA is investigating.
