ROBINSON TWP. — A 60-year-old woman suffered a possible broken shoulder when a steel wall fell on her late Wednesday afternoon.

Emergency crews responded to the 12800 block of Buchanan Street in Robinson Township shortly after 4:30 p.m. The call came across as a building collapse with an injury, but nobody trapped.

Robinson Township Fire Chief Paul VanVelzen said the woman was in the area of a steel wall that was being set.

"The wall fell and hit her in the head and shoulder," he said. "She's very lucky."
