Scaffolding collapses injuring several in Miami

- A scaffolding collapsed in Miami Wednesday afternoon injuring five or six people, Miami Fire-Rescue said.

The scaffolding appeared to have collapsed from dozens of stories above Brickell Ave.

Four people were transported to Jackson Memorial Hospital, WSVN reported.

Alberto Sanchez tweeted video of the aftermath showing a crushed vehicle, debris in the roadway, and emergency vehicles. "Raining debris," Sanchez tweeted.

"We were just working at our computers, and all of a sudden heard a very large crash. We looked up, and in front of our eyes, we just see all this debris just crashing down, so the pieces that looked like scaffolding or platform, whatever this is, that struck the car and crashed the roof of it," Rudy Tomarchio, who works in the area, told WSVN.
