EDWARDS, Colorado – Two people were injured in an incident in Beaver Creek, Beaver Creek Friday afternoon.
At around 2:00 p.m., crews from the Eagle River Fire Protection District (ERFPD) were dispatched to a presumably medical emergency at the charter in Beaver Creek. Authorities say the 911 operator was extremely disturbed and couldn’t give the dispatcher much information, only that the call appeared to be medical in nature.
When the emergency services arrived, they found two injured near the gate of the parking garage. Both were transported to a local hospital. Its terms are currently unknown.
Authorities say a valve assembly in the engine room appears to have released a large amount of high pressure water.
After it was found that an inner wall of the parking garage had partially collapsed, additional units were called in. A building inspector was hired to assess the building and its static integrity.
