Hospital Construction Accident
By: Heartland News

This morning investigators in Cape Girardeau are trying to determine what caused a huge slab of concrete to fall onto a worker.

The accident happened at Southeast Hospital on the construction site of their new parking lot.

Relatives of the injured man say he is at a St. Louis hospital this morning, undergoing tests and treatment for severe chest and other injuries.

Wednesday morning a section of Broadway at the accident site remains closed.

But officials hope to reopen it, after they make sure the mishap caused no damage to the road. But they say that could take a couple of days.
