OAK­LAND, Calif. — Of­fi­cials say scaf­fold­ing and wet con­crete ap­par­ently gave way at a build­ing site in the San Fran­cisco Bay Area, in­jur­ing at least 19 work­ers.

Hospi­tal spokesman Clay­ton War­ren said emer­gency crews trans­ported the in­jured from Fri­day’s par­tial col­lapse at a con­struc­tion site in Oak­land to Alta Bates Sum­mit Med­i­cal Cen­ter and two other hospi­tals.

Oak­land po­lice said in an email that no one was killed. Po­lice ini­tially told re­porters at the scene that 13 work­ers were in­jured. KNTV of San Jose re­ported most of the in­juries were mi­nor, in­clud­ing scrapes and bruises.

The cause of the col­lapse wasn’t im­me­di­ately known.
