Highlands Borough Clerk Carolyn Cummins and Assistant Borough Clerk Debbie Daily were seriously injured this morning when the ceiling of the former borough hall collapsed under them.
The women were in the attic of the Sandy damaged building looking for official documents when the collapse occured.
Highlands Mayor Frank Nolan said that a Medi Vac Helicopter was called for Cummins, but then called off. Both women have been transported to the Jersey Shore Medical Center in Neptune.
UPDATE: Both women are expected to make a full recovery.
Highlands’ municipal operations have been conducted in trailers since shortly after Hurricane Sandy ravaged the borough.
