A collapse of a roof of a fish plant building that was under construction in Newellton sent emergency services rushing to the Cape Sable Island community Sept. 18 late in the afternoon.
RCMP officers on the scene said witnesses described the trusses as falling all at once. Initial reports indicated that people had been trapped but police said there were no life-threatening injuries as a result of the incident.
The call saw a large response from emergency services in the region as paramedics, firefighters and RCMP converged on the scene shortly before 6 p.m. An EHS Lifeflight helicopter that had been dispatched to Shelburne County was recalled.
Provincial labour investigators have been notified.
