"God saved me today. I'm lucky to be alive," Donatien said as he stood with his friends. Two workers were taken to UPMC Presbyterian Hospital in Oakland for injuries that police described as non-life threatening. Police said the workers were on a “sky lift,” a piece of heavy equipment that, similar to scaffolding, allows construction crews to work on a structure's exterior from an elevated platform. The building, bounded by Kirkwood Street, North Highland Avenue and Broad Street, is being renovated to become Hotel Indigo, a 137-room boutique hotel slated to open this year.
