Authorities say an excavator operator was injured when his machine fell through the floor of the old Spirit Lake City Hall.
The accident occurred about 9:30 a.m. Tuesday. The machine was being used to tear down the building. The excavator landed on one of its sides in the building basement.
The operator was taken to a local hospital for treatment of several cuts from broken glass.
A crane removed the excavator on Wednesday so work could continue.
