As a result of the accident, a third was left hanging in the air on a rope, but was rescued via helicopter and transported to the hospital. Apart from suffering from shock, he was uninjured. A fourth worker who witnessed the unfortunate incident subsequently suffered a heart attack and is in serious condition.
