Two people were critically injured this afternoon after a scaffolding fell from a building in the SOMA neighborhood.

Authorities told KTVU that the two workers were installing scaffolding at a 27-story office building located at 350 Mission Street when it collapsed. One worker fell some 40 feet and the second worker fell about 30 feet, fire spokeswoman Mindy Talmadge said.

The workers were rushed to San Francisco General Hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Meanwhile, police have blocked off traffic at various intersections in the area.

"The intersection of Fremont and Mission Streets is closed. Fremont Street between Mission and Market Streets is also closed, and Mission Street between Fremont and Beale is closed," Sgt. Danielle Newman told us.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
