2 workers fall 30 feet off scaffolding in Pawleys Island

PAWLEYS ISLAND, S.C. (AP) – Two construction workers have been seriously injured after falling 30 feet from scaffolding while working on a home in Pawleys Island.

Midway Fire Rescue Assistant Chief Jim Crawford tells local media that fire crews responded around noon Wednesday to a home under construction in the south part of the city.

The two men were conscious, Crawford says, but had serious injuries. They were taken to a nearby trauma center by helicopter.

Crawford says it’s unknown what led to the men’s 30-foot drop.
