MADRID — Two construction workers were killed Wednesday after being buried under the roof of a school that collapsed, Spanish authorities said.
No students were in the building in the northern city of Gijon with Spain’s children still enjoying their winter holidays.
Emergency workers took several hours to recover both bodies from under the debris. Two other workers were injured when the roof came down on them.
The cause of the accident was not immediately clear.
Adrian Barbon, the head of the northern Asturias region, expressed his condolences to the families of the two victims.
