Last updated on Tuesday, November 29, 2011

(INDIANAPOLIS)(WISH) - Two construction workers were taken to local hospitals Monday after falling nearly 16 feet while working on a hangar at the Indianapolis International Airport.

Airport Spokesman Carlo Bertolini said the workers' safety harness broke their fall.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is investigating the accident. There is no word on what caused the accident.

Comlux is in the midst of expanding its Indianapolis operations; the expansion includes the construction of a new hangar. RJ Ryan Construction released a statement Monday about the project that started in mid-August.

"The two injured workmen were employed by Harmon Steel and were erecting steel in the office portion of the building. We are in the process of trying to determine exactly what happened to cause the accident. Our concern right now is with the injured men and their families," the statement read.

The company finishes and designs custom aircraft interiors.
