Workers at Indiana casino plunge into Lake Michigan

There were some incredibly scary moments for some members of a construction crew working at a casino in Hammond, Indiana.

The workers were attaching a covered walkway to the Horseshoe Casino there when sixteen of them fell into Lake Michigan.

The workers were using sledgehammers to adjust a connector to the barge that held up the metal passageway to the casino.

The barge shifted beneath the walkway and fell.  One worker was taken to the hospital.  The others were treated at the scene.

All the workers were wearing lifejackets.
