Crews responded to a partial building collapse at the old Carraway Hospital demo site Thursday afternoon. Birmingham Fire and Rescue crews responded to the collapse at 25th Street North & Walnut Hill Circle. Officials say part of a building collapsed onto a piece of machinery that was being used to demo the building. The operator of that machine suffered some injuries, but we’re told he was “alert and conscious” and is being taken to an area emergency room for treatment. Corporate Realty, who is developing the property, released the following statement about the incident: Our top concern is for the injured worker, and our thoughts are with him and his family. We are in touch with the demolition contractor, and we are gratified to hear that his injuries are being treated and that he is expected to make a full recovery.
