A building that partially collapsed in Connecticut injured several people on Friday, just a few blocks away from Yale University.
When the building collapsed in New Haven, it was still under construction.
A spokesperson for Mayor Justin Elicker confirmed that some of those rescued had suffered injuries. It was not reported how serious their injuries were.
Elicker announced at a press briefing a few minutes later that seven people had been injured, two of them critically.
Yale described it in an alert sent to campus shortly after 1 pm local time as “a building construction accident.” Lafayette Street between Church Street South & Congress Avenue was also closed.
