North Carolina officials are investigating an accident at the Wilmington State Port after three men suffered broken legs while working in a cargo ship.

Wilmington Fire Department Battalion Chief Sam Hill Jr. said the men were hit by a loader that was attached to a crane Sunday afternoon. Hill said the equipment pinned the men against a wall in the ship’s cargo hold.

It took emergency workers about 40 minutes to get the men out and on their way to a hospital.

The ship was loaded with wood pulp.
