Floor Collapses Causing Church’s Chicken Fryer to Fall on Top of and Severely Burn Three Young Women

The kitchen floor of a Livingston, Texas Church’s Chicken restaurant collapsed, causing the industrial fryer full of boiling grease to fall on top of three young women working there. Each of the women sustained severe burns and all were life-flighted to a Houston hospital and remain in critical condition. Benny Agosto, Jr. represents two of the injured women.

According to abc13.com, two customers in Church’s at the time of the collapse immediately jumped the counter and pulled two of the women out of the hole, but the third one was trapped between appliances. Firefighters said that the girls wouldn’t be alive without the customers’ help.

The Firm is investigating the cause of this incident.
