A worker was trapped between two large granite slabs at a commercial building in Largo, officials said.
The slabs of granite reportedly weigh about 1,000 pounds each. A pallet of about 10 pallets broke from its supports, trapping 45-year-old Sergio Alvarez, investigators said.
It took about 45 minutes to extricate Alvarez, the sheriff's office said. It wasn't clear exactly where he was injured, but the sheriff's office said they were not life-threatening.
