A man has been taken to hospital with serious injuries after a home under construction collapsed in Oakville.
Firefighters found the man in the garage of the home but had to stabilize the building before reaching him.
Oakville Fire Deputy Chief Andy Glenn said the man had fallen through the floor and was stuck underneath a large load of lumber. No one else was injured.
Theyre clearly working on the second floor, so somehow the floor had given way, whether it was something to do with the structure itself or the winds, whatever the case maybe, its still undetermined, Glenn told reporters at the scene.
Glenn said it was a good sign the man was conscious and breathing when police first found him.
I do know he was complaining of some serious injuries to his body, so Im hopeful that the person will recover, its just undetermined at this point, he said.
