VIRGINIA BEACH - Two workers were injured Monday when an air conditioning unit fell on them.

Va. Beach Fire and Rescue spokesman Battalion Chief Tim Riley said a crane was lifting the unit from the roof of the four-story building when it broke apart.

'The unit fell about 10 feet,' he said.

A ladder truck was used to get the seriously-injured workers off the roof, Riley added.

They were taken to the hospital for treatment.

The accident is under investigation.
