Falling Concrete Slab Injures Worker

On Monday afternoon around 1pm, a construction worker was injured when a 10-by-13 foot concrete slab fell on his arm, pining it between the concrete and a pipe.

The large slab was dislodged while crews performed maintenance work of the ceiling of an underground parking garage. The construction accident occurred on the lowest floor of a three-level garage in New York City’s Upper Eat Side.

The injured worker was taken to a local hospital. Fire and police officials at the scene of the construction accident said his injuries were non-life-threatening.
