FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. (WSVN) - A man had to be rescued from a construction site after suffering an injury on the job.

Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue crews were sent to the building along South Federal Highway and Southeast Second Street, Thursday morning.

Officials said the 35-year-old suffered a back injury on the seventh floor.
