Missouri Stairway Collapse Injures First Responders

Three St. Louis, Mo., fire department employees are being treated for injuries after a stairway collapse.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the injuries are not life-threatening.

A firefighter and two paramedics were called Tuesday to a building that houses a Jackson Hewitt Tax Service office for a report of a man down. A man was found dead on a second-floor porch at the rear of the building.

The firefighter and paramedics were trying to remove the body when an exterior stairway collapsed. All three were taken to a hospital for treatment.
