Jan. 13, 2014, Calgary – Two workers have been injured at a home construction site in Calgary.

Carol Henke with the city's fire department says it appears several framed walls of the three-storey house fell over in the wind.

One of the workers fell about 4 1/2 metres and was rescued by firefighters before being handed over to EMS personnel.

Fire crews have secured the site because it is no longer considered safe.
