Authorities say two New York City workers are in critical condition after separate accidents on construction sites. A man was hit Monday night by a bulldozer that was backing up at a construction site on Staten Island.

Another worker fell Tuesday morning about 25 feet inside a hospital building under construction on Manhattan's East Side. City officials say the man fell while trying to secure a steel beam on the second floor. Contractors are building a 15-story commercial tower as part of Bellevue Hospital's expansion.

The accidents occurred just after thousands attended a memorial service at St. Patrick's Cathedral on Monday for construction workers killed on the job.
