Eight workers were seriously injured in a construction accident while working on a decrepit Brooklyn building Wednesday afternoon, officials and witnesses said.
The men fell from the third floor to the first floor of 1916 Prospect Place about 1 p.m., Fire Department officials said.
Some of the injured were taken to Kings County Hospital, a department spokesman said. None of the injuries appeared to be life-threatening.
One neighbor said he warned the men that the structure was unsound on their way in.
