DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) - Two men are recovering after being injured in a 20-foot fall from scaffolding in downtown Dubuque.

The Telegraph Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1VHxnVv ) that the accident happened Friday afternoon.

Dubuque police say two Swift Plumbing employees - 24-year-old Brett Cupps and 47-year-old Scott Weber, both of Dubuque - each reported ankle injuries.

Cupps refused medical treatment. Police say Weber was taken by ambulance to UnityPoint Health-Finley Hospital.

Police say Weber and Cupps were on a third-story catwalk between two buildings as they worked to remove a cast-iron pipe. The catwalk broke free, and the two fell to a second-story platform.
