Fire and ambulance crews were called to a construction site in Marlow this lunchtime after two men were injured in a fall.
Buckinghamshire & Milton Keynes Fire and Rescue Service said it was called to the site in Malthouse Way at 12.04pm after the men fell from the second floor to the first floor of the building.
One engine and a crew from High Wycombe, along with an officer, were called and firefighters used working-at-height equipment to safely rescue the men.
South Central Ambulance Service said it was called to the incident at 11.38am and sent two ambulances, a rapid response vehicle and a hazardous area response team (HART).
It said two men had fallen approximately three metres down a lift shaft.
One of the men had suffered a suspected fractured pelvis, and the other had an arm injury and lower back pain. They were both taken to the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford.
