A Newburyport man who was reportedly injured in a December 22 construction accident is recovering at Massachusetts General Hospital. As of last Tuesday, he was listed in fair condition.
The 48-year-old man was airlifted in critical condition following a scaffolding accident that plunged him and a coworker from the second story to the sidewalk. The two men were apparently installing fascia board trim along the edge of the roof of a house at the time of the workplace accident.
The coworker was discharged from Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and is recovering at home. Inspectors from the United States Occupational Health and Safety Administration are still investigating the accident.
