ATTLEBORO, Mass. (AP) — Authorities say four people, one of whom was unconscious, have been taken to the hospital after falling off a roof in Attleboro.

Officials say the men were contractors working on the roof of a two-story building when the ladder they were using either slipped or failed at about 10:30 a.m. Thursday.

All four victims were transported to Rhode Island Hospital in Providence.

The severity of their injuries could not immediately be confirmed.
