Renovations of older homes and buildings occur on a daily basis in Illinois. With the increased work and labor demand, construction workers' accidents are likely to increase. Recently, some workers in another state became trapped in a house under construction, but they survived.
Approximately six workers were working on a home renovation when the accident occurred. The home is considered a row home, which is similar to a town home, sharing walls with homes on each side. Reportedly, the home was documented to be in disrepair as late as 2009.
