Three mural painters were involved in an accident on Monday after a scaffold collapsed from the side of a luxury resort being built in Hollywood, Florida. One of them fell to his death and the other two managed to hang on with safety harnesses 40 feet above the ground.
According to Hallandale Beach Fire Rescue, the accident occurred at 1:30 p.m. on the southern wall of the Hyde Resort & Residences. The three painters were working on an abstract mural designed by Douglas Hoekzema when the scaffolding collapsed, killing one of them and leaving the other two dangling at a dangerous height. Police did not release the identities of the men.
