Multiple people are being treated for injuries after they were trapped following a collapse at an old power plant in South Boston.
According to Boston police, some sort of room collapse at 776 Summer St., the address for the Edison Power Plant, left multiple people trapped.
Boston police officers, firefighters, Emergency Medical Services personnel and technical rescue teams responded to the scene.
Boston EMS said it has transported two people from the scene to receive hospital treatment, and that personnel are currently providing care to a third patient, who crews are still working to free from the building.
A spokesperson for the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) said the agency has been notified of the incident and is responding to the scene.
The Edison Power Plant, also known as the L Street Power Plant, is located down the road from Castle Island and just across from Black Falcon Pier. According to the Boston Planning & Development Agency, the century-old power plant was sold to Redgate/Hilco by the Exelon Corporation.
Redgate/Hilco proposed to develop approximately 15 acres of land located at 776 Summer St. with approximately 610,000 square feet of residential use, approximately 860,000 square feet of office/research and development uses, approximately 80,000 square feet of retail uses, approximately 115,000 square feet of hotel use and more than 1,200 parking spaces.
The proposal will preserve several historic buildings on the site and provide 5.7 acres of new public open space, according to the Boston Planning & Development Agency.
