Three Workers Fall from Little Rock's I-430 Bridge

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Authorities are looking for three workers who fell from scaffolding on the Interstate 430 bridge into the Arkansas River at Little Rock.

The accident involved workers with the Central Arkansas Water utility, which is installing a new water line along the river bridge.

A spokesman for the sheriff's office says four workers were in a basket and one was able to hold on and make an emergency call.  The one worker was rescued while the other three landed in the water. 

Rescuers are searching the river around the six-lane interstate bridge.
