"Four other workers were shifted to Saqr Hospital," they said. "Two workers were seriously injured, six sustained moderate wounds and three suffered minor injuries."
They added that two ambulances reached the scene in eight minutes. Seven others came later.
Eyewitnesses told Khaleej Times that 12 traffic patrols and nine ambulances were present. "This is apart from the Ministry of Interior air wing rescue teams."
