Two men suffered life-threatening injuries after an “incident” involving a train occurred on Friday morning, Edmonton police said.
At around 11 a.m., police were called to an industrial work site near 45 Street and 68 Avenue.
Two victims were found on the ground in “medical duress,” according to a news release.
Paramedics treated the men and took them to hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Police said Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) was notified because it was believed to be a workplace accident. A police spokesperson later said the train incident involved a scrap metal cart.
A Global News crew at the scene said police, emergency medical workers and OHS staff could be seen at the property of a business called Maple Leaf Metals.
OHS confirmed two men were working at a job site but did not say who they worked for or what type of work they were doing.
Neither police nor OHS would confirm how the men were injured. When asked if the incident involved a collision, both police and OHS declined to say.
