At least six people were injured when a wall collapsed on a tractor at a Kafr Kanna building site in northern Israel on Tuesday morning.

Magen David Adom said its medics treated a 25-year-old man in serious condition who was taken by helicopter to Haifa’s Rambam Medical Center. He was unconscious and on artificial respiration en route to the hospital.

Another 25-year-old man was trapped under the rubble for nearly two hours before first responders managed to rescue him. He was listed in serious condition, but was communicating with medics as a helicopter arrived to take him to hospital.

A man in his 30s was moderately hurt, and three others were listed in light condition.

They were all taken to the Haifa hospital.

The ambulance service and police said they were searching the area to determine that there were no other people trapped after the wall gave way.

It was not immediately clear what caused the wall to collapse.

Police said the incident was under investigation.
