( 4UMF NEWS ) Two Children Injured In Wall Collapse:
A large wall collapsed in Brooklyn injuring two boys.
It happened around 7:45 p.m. on Friday on Willoughby Avenue in the Bushwick section.
The wall was about five feet high and 25 feet across and fell on the 10 and 11 year old children. The children were rushed to the hospital with serious head injuries but both are expected to survive.
The uncle of one of the boys says that construction work is being done next to the wall and that may have compromised the structure.
The wall separates the home from a vacant lot adjacent to the property.
