KANSAS CITY, Ks. (KCTV) - Two people were taken to the hospital for injuries suffered after falling through skylights.

A Kansas City Kansas Fire Department official said a worker at TSL Terminals, Inc. had fallen 25 feet through a skylight at the business just before 9 a.m. Friday.

After the fire department was called in to assist with a ladder truck, a firefighter fell through a skylight on a different part of the business roof.

The fire department said the skylights on the roof were made of corrugated fiberglass and it blends in with the color of the roof.

The firefighter, a 19-year veteran of the department, is now in serious but stable condition.

The worker is in critical condition.

“Please continue to keep them and their families in your thoughts and prayers,” the department said in a tweet.
