Construction Worker Sustained Arm Injury in Accident

A construction accident on Tuesday morning at Purdue University’s Mackey Area left a construction worker with arm injuries, cuts, and bruises after the worker fell about ten feet.

He was treated at St. Elizabeth Central Hospital, according to a university spokesperson who would not release the worker’s name. The spokesperson did say the injured worker was pulling metal decking from “penthouse level” when he stepped through a hole and fell roughly 10 feet from the fourth floor to the third floor. It took an aerial truck and about 15 minutes to remove the worker.

A safety manager was reportedly on-site to examine the scene of the accident.
