On Friday morning, a sub-contractor working on upgrades to a power plant at a college in Virginia was injured by a falling pipe. The iron and insulation pipe reportedly measured 40 feet long with a one foot diameter.

Firefighters from a nearby city responded to the construction accident.

The unidentified construction accident victim suffered a laceration and bruises on one leg. He was taken to a local elementary school, where he was airlifted to the hospital. A spokesperson for the college said the sub-contractor’s injuries were non-life-threatening.
