The workers got hurt as a concrete floor was being lowered by a crane Monday at the site of an apartment building under construction. The site is across the street from UCF's football stadium, and the apartment building eventually will house UCF students.

Two of the workers were initially trapped but were able to free themselves.

Four workers were hospitalized.

Lt. Paula Thompson of the Seminole County Fire Department says two workers are in serious condition and the other two are in stable condition.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has been contacted.
