San Francisco, California (CNN) Two workers in San Francisco died Friday after being crushed under falling slabs of granite.

Officials say about 10 large slabs of rock fell on the two men as it was unloaded from a truck.

It took emergency crews about five minutes to break through the granite to reach the men.

One was pronounced dead at the scene, the other died shortly after arriving at a hospital.

Officials said the granite company did not have any previous accidents or violations on record.

The accident is under investigation.
