    Three injured in scaffolding collapse - by Chris Williams, Business Gazette, MD
    The three workers were apparently on the roof when the scaffolding collapsed and became entangled in the structure as it fell to the ground, Piringer said. Nearby medical staff and other employees immediately ran to the scene and were able to extract the injured workers before the fire and rescue workers arrived. All other workers in the area were accounted for, Piringer said.
