Worker injured in Spirit Lake demolition accident

An excavator operator sustained injuries after his machine fell through the floor and landed on the basement of Spirit Lake City Hall on Tuesday morning, September 11.

The excavating machine that was being used to demolish the old building fell through and landed on its side at around 9:30 a.m., Sioux City television station KTIV reports.

The unnamed operator received treatment for multiple cuts caused by broken glass on a local hospital. Work was resumed after the excavator was removed a day after the accident.
