Two workers are being treated at Lockport Memorial Hospital after part of the silo they were working on collapsed.

According to the Niagara County Sheriff's Office, the two men, ages 50 and 54, were on a high lift doing work on the grain silo Wednesday morning at the McCollum Dairy Farm in Gasport. Investigators say part of the silo then collapsed on top of them.

One man was knocked to the ground, falling 20 feet. The second man was reportedly crushed between the lift and the fallen debris. Their conditions are unknown.
