Jones said the workers were on a lift when it tipped over. The lift was extended to its furthest point.

"Both of those employees were treated by fire pretty immediately," he said. "They had life-threatening injuries. They were taken to St. Joseph's Hospital where they were pronounced dead."

Both workers were contracted by MCSO to paint the jail. Both were employed by Riddle Painting.
