DENVER – A man was rescued by Denver firefighters after falling into a hole at a Union Station construction site.

The accident occurred at about 2 p.m.

Crews at the scene told 7NEWS that the man is a worker at the site and was in the hole when he started to climb out on a ladder. The man then slipped off the ladder and fell 10 feet.

The worker suffered a leg injury but was pulled out of the hole by a safety winch and transported to an area hospital in good condition.

The site is part of the half-a-billion-dollar transit center that has been four years in the making.
