Un obrero fue víctima de un accidente la semana pasada en la Universidad de Arkansas. Un muro de concreto le cayó al obrero, pero ahora se encuentra en condición estable, a pesar de haberle sacado tremendo susto a varios testigos.

A worker was the victim of an accident last week at the University of Arkansas when a concrete wall collapsed on him while working at a construction site. The unidentified laborer is reported to be in stable condition. 

I am hoping for extra credit on this one, as I managed to get this photo published in the area's Spanish language newspaper.
