Two workers injured, trapped on Longfellow Bridge

The Boston Fire Department reports two workers about 35 feet down a shaft where one of the Longfellow Bridge's "shakers" used to be were injured this afternoon when chutes funneling concrete down to them gave way.

Workers were placed in stokes baskets, secured and raised up to surface. Boston EMS treated and transported.

The department says their injuries were not considered life threatening and that rescuers used a construction crane already at the site of the bridge reconstruction project to lift the baskets.
