    SPIRIT LAKE, Iowa (AP) Authorities say an excavator operator was injured when his machine fell through the floor of the old Spirit Lake City Hall.

    Sioux City television station KTIV says the accident occurred about 9:30 a.m. Tuesday. The machine was being used to tear down the building. The excavator landed on one of its sides in the building basement.

    The operator was taken to a local hospital for treatment of several cuts from broken glass.

    A crane removed the excavator on Wednesday so work could continue.
