Recently, three workers in Denver were hurt while working at a construction site. The incident happened on Brighton Boulevard. The construction workers were injured when a large chain that was being used to move a sewage pipe broke.
After the chain snapped, it hit the workers, which led to their injury. Per the KDVR-TV, the Denver Fire Department was called to the scene. One of the workers had to be retrieved using a ladder truck after tumbling 30 feet. One of the workers took the most punishment from the chain, suffering severe injuries. The other two workers escaped with minor injuries. All three were taken to the hospital after the incident.
