In what seems to be an all-too-common occurrence recently, a partial building collapse yesterday has sadly cost the lives of 3 construction workers and injured one additional worker.

Yesterday afternoon, the Houston Fire Department responded to an emergency call involving a partially collapsed building on the West side of the city. The New York Times reported that the collapse happened during the installation of a precast concrete interior staircase that all the way from the 13th or 14th floor of the building down to the first floor.
