JOHNSTOWN — An unidentified man receives medical attention Friday. Two workers were injured around 11 a.m. when a free-standing block wall collapsed onto them during the demolition of three Moxham houses destroyed by fire in November. Johnstown Assistant Fire Chief Bob Statler said one worker was pinned for a short time until co-workers could free him. He was taken to the hospital with moderate injuries, Statler said. The other worker was taken to the hospital with a minor leg injury when struck by debris from the collapsing wall, he said. Seventh Ward and West End ambulance services transported the injured.
