Seven construction workers were injured Wednesday night after the second-story floor of a downtown Los Angeles building under construction collapsed.

The four-story construction site is located on the 1000 block of S. Olive Street, just a few blocks away from L.A. Live, according to ABC 7. Firefighters were called to the scene a little before 7:15 p.m.

CBS Los Angeles reports that it appears that the workers were pouring concrete when a 30x20 part of the floor collapsed. It caused them to "ride" from the second floor to the first.

Brian Humphrey of the Los Angeles Fire Department told FOX 11 that all of the workers' injuries were minor.

A residential apartment building is planned for that construction site. OSHA will be investigating the incident.
