FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. (WSVN) - Crews came to the rescue of a construction worker after he fell from a scaffolding in downtown Fort Lauderdale.
The man was working on the seventh floor of an office building at the intersection of South Andrews Avenue and Southeast Sixth Street when he fell approximately 15 feet from a scaffold inside the building, Friday morning.
Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue tweeted a photo of the scene as crews rendered aid to the 53-year-old victim.
Firefighters lowered the worker down to the third floor due to the elevators of the building being out of service.
From there, paramedics transported him to Broward Health Medical Center with a broken leg.
This is the second fall to take place at a Fort Lauderdale construction site in less than a month. On Jan. 18, another worker fell from a scaffolding along the 500 block of South Andrews Avenue. He also fractured his leg.
