2 injured, 1 critically, after wind blows chain-link fence
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Authorities in San Francisco say two pedestrians were injured, one critically, after they were struck by a chain-link fence toppled by wind-driven construction debris.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports Monday a man and a woman were hit Sunday while walking near the fence at a construction site in the city’s Mission neighborhood.
Official says paramedics took the man to San Francisco General Hospital, where he was being treated for life-threatening injuries.
Firefighters say the woman had a minor injury.
Winds were gusting up to 30 mph throughout San Francisco on Sunday when a gust of wind pushed a large pile of debris into the fence, which blew over and into the pedestrians.
