PHOENIX -- Two men working on a Phoenix home under construction have been injured after falling from a scaffold.
Phoenix Fire Department officials say the men were working at a height of about three stories Friday afternoon when the scaffold either slipped or collapsed.
The two men fell to the ground and appeared to have a number of injuries, but no apparent broken bones or life-threatening injuries.
Fire Department spokesman Jonathan Jacobs told KNXV-TV that both men were conscious and talking at the scene.
Jacobs says the men were taken to a hospital to be checked as a precaution due to having fallen more than 10 feet.
The names of the men weren't immediately released.
