Spanish authorities say two construction workers have been killed after being buried under the roof of a school that collapsed
MADRID — Two construction workers were killed Wednesday after being buried under the roof of a school that collapsed, Spanish authorities said.
No students were in the building in the northern city of Gijón with Spain’s children still enjoying their winter holidays.
Emergency workers took several hours to recover both bodies from under the debris. Two other workers were injured when the roof came down on them.
The cause of the accident was not immediately clear.
Adrián Barbón, the head of the northern Asturias region, expressed his condolences to the families of the two victims.
