Officials with South Metro Fire Rescue said the workers each fell 40 feet. They said firefighters responded to the scene and quickly came to their aid.

“Both patients actually fell really close to the street level. So our firefighters and paramedics were able to quickly get to them just feet from the truck, get them quickly into the ambulance,” said South Metro Fire Rescue spokesman Eric Hurst.
