Two workers are being treated for undetermined injuries after a workplace accident at a Falcon Homes construction site in Red Deer on Monday.
Kelly Wilson, a platoon chief with Red Deer emergency services said fire medics were called just after 12 noon to 43 Vincent Close, where a skid steer operator had been working on the basement for a new home.
The machine, owned by Smithco Excavations, had tipped, pinning two employees with Alberta First Form, who had been working on basement footings, said Chris Chodan, a spokesman for Alberta Occupational Health and Safety.
Both men, one in his early 50s and the other in his mid-20s, were conscious and breathing when they were prepared for ambulance transport, said Wilson.
The machine operator was not injured, said Chris Chodan, a spokesman for Alberta Occupational Health and Safety.
There has been no word on the state of their injuries. Family members have been notified, but the workers’ names have not been released.
Alberta Occupational Health and Safety and an RCMP are investigating.
