6 Workers Crushed by Coffee Beans
TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras — A concrete wall collapsed at a Honduran coffee warehouse Wednesday, crushing six workers under tons of bagged coffee beans, emergency officials said.
Authorities said eight workers were bagging beans in the warehouse in the city of Villanueva, about 120 miles north of Tegucigalpa, when a concrete wall gave way, unleashing the avalanche of coffee.
Two workers were hospitalized but it wasn’t immediately clear how seriously they were hurt, authorities said.
