The scaffolding gave way around 5 p.m. Thursday night at the United Bank Building in downtown Charleston. The unidentified workers were in the process of painting the building when the scaffolding collapsed.

Amazingly, the injuries are considered minor. Witnesses says the man who fell three stories actually tried to get up and walk away. Paramedics took him to the hospital.
