Two workers were injured Tuesday afternoon when a deck collapsed at an apartment building under construction in Lawrenceville.

Pittsburgh Police Lt. Jason Lando said the workers, ages 24 and 18, were injured about 4:30 p.m. near the intersection of 49th and Harrison streets. Lando said the workers fell three stories to the ground.

Police Sgt. Ronald Griffin said detectives were told the men are in stable condition at UPMC Presbyterian in Oakland.

Neighbors said they understand that the new loft apartments are scheduled to open this spring.
