Two injured at Oswego wall collapse
Two people were hospitalized when the wall of the still-under-construction Oswego Fire Station on Woolley Road collapsed Thursday afternoon.
The brick wall fell just before 2 p.m. Thursday. The workers were temporarily trapped and were taken to a local hospital with non life-threatening, officials said.
The construction site is south of the Oswego High School, off Plainfield Road.
This article explains an accident that happened today at the site of our new Fire Station. The future station has huge metal bars reaching up to the sky probably 3 stories. On my way back to work I heard the police, fire chief, at least 2 fire trucks and a couple ambulance. They all screamed by me. This fire station is located across the street and parking lot from one of the junior highs. We all parked and gasped in fear as we saw one of those large groups of structures leaning ninety degrees in the wind. It's very wide. We all feared the worse thinking someone had fallen off these things. Even the most reliable students told us that they had heard a guy fell on his back. My naughty guy told me he saw it, (that's crap the site is at least 500 yards away) and that the guy was probably dead. Thank God nothing horrible happened to these two poor guys.
The wind also made driving fun for the citizens of O-town. The wind blew the feet of snow across roadways making for a whole bunch of folk's auto's landing face first into a big drifts or each other.
Thank God I have a town route. My first year of driving I was out in the country. That experience made a man outa me!
Oh yeah our Governor got fired today!!
