AUSTIN -- Two men were injured after falling 20 to 25 feet off of scaffolding in Southwest Austin.

It happened around 2:40 p.m. Monday at 9433 FM 2244 (Bee Cave Road) near Cuerna Vaca.

A father and son working to put up awning on a new office complex called Crystal Mountain fell when a ladder they'd placed on scaffolding gave way.

STAR Flight responded. Both men have injuries, but they are reportedly not life-threatening. One man suffered a broken rib.

The cause of the collapse is under investigation, and detectives are working to determine if wind was a factor.
