Two men were injured Thursday afternoon when the cellphone tower they were erecting collapsed in Hempfield Township, Westmoreland County.

Firefighters and paramedics used all-terrain vehicles to rescue the pair from a hilltop wooded area above Route 130 near Jeannette.

Shaw said the unidentified men were putting together a new section of the tower when it shifted just after 12:30 p.m. and they fell about 30 feet.

Both were taken by ambulance to area hospitals with serious but not life-threatening, injuries, Shaw said.
