Southern California Tank Collapses

The roof of a giant tank collapsed while under construction today in Carson, south of Los Angeles, trapping
11 workers who fell about 50 feet. All 11 have been rescued and four are in critical condition.

Officials say two of the workers were impaled in a web
of steel rods and wet concrete at a wastewater treatment site.

Seven of the workers are being treated for minor injuries.
