CHICAGO (WLS) --ABC7 has obtained the calls for help just after a deadly construction accident in the northern suburbs.
Operator: Fire Department, what's the address of your emergency.
Caller: Uh, Touhy Avenue right underneath 90.
Operator: What's going on there?

The accident killed Vicente Santoyo, 47, and injured three others on Tuesday. A 45-ton steel beam fell from I-90 onto Touhy Avenue in Des Plaines.
