Four people suffered serious injuries after falling 50 feet in a scaffolding collapse at a construction site this afternoon, according to the police chief.

Bordentown Township police Chief Brian Pesce said the victims were working on a Team Campus medical building under construction at 115 N. Route 130 when scaffolding collapsed. He said police responded to the site first at approximately 12:25 p.m. today.

“Upon arrival, officers and responding firefighters from the Mission Fire Company located four victims who sustained injuries after a section of scaffolding they were standing on had collapsed,” Pesce said.

The four employees of Ben-Mar Construction of Waterford Works in Winslow were were performing masonry work 50 feet above the ground at the time of the collapse, according to the chief.

“After police, firefighters and Bordentown EMS tended to the victims, they were all transported to Capital Health Regional Medical Center in Trenton for treatment of serious injuries, according to the chief. Police have not yet released the names of the injured.
