HOUSTON, TX - On Saturday, breakdown crews started cleaning up the wreckage from Friday's scaffolding collapse in downtown Houston.  Friday, six construction workers were injured when scaffolding at an apartment construction site fell. All injuries were minor.

Otto Schweisgut witnessed the incident while with a German tour group and returned to see the clean-up on Saturday.

"If you look at it, and especially if you've been here when everything fell down, you would never believe anyone would leave here alive," Schweisgut said.

The breakdown crew is trying to clear the area by Sunday night, with hopes of allowing construction to begin again soon.
