PASCAGOULA, Miss. (AP) - Two workers from VT Halter Marine in Pascagoula remained hospitalized in Alabama from an accident involving the shipyard’s two largest cranes.

Officials say several cranes were moving a section of a ship’s bow Wednesday when the cranes collapsed. One hit the corner of a tool and equipment warehouse where people were working. The accident at the yard injured five workers.

Jack Prendergast, Halter’s executive vice president, told the Sun Herald (http://bit.ly/1luJdB3) on Thursday the crane operator was seriously injured. The other four injured workers had been in the warehouse.

Prendergast said OSHA investigators and representatives of the crane manufacturer were on the grounds Thursday.

The company has not released names of the injured.
