Two workers were killed at John F. Kennedy International Airport Monday in a construction accident, authorities said.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which operates the airport, said in a statement it received a report of two workers trapped under construction rubble shortly after 11 a.m. 

Emergency services responded to the scene in an attempt to rescue the workers, who were declared dead at the scene, officials said. 

The Port Authority said in an update to USA TODAY the workers were relocating utility lines “in the vicinity of cogeneration plant to support the increased energy needs of the JFK redevelopment project.”
