Worcester Fire Special Operations rescues an iron worker who fell approximately 10 feet at the 90 Front Street City Square construction site Wednesday afternoon.
An unidentified male was rescued by the Worcester Fire Department Special Operations team at approximately 2:45 p.m. today on the site of the City Square Construction project, off of Front Street.
While it is unclear as to exactly what happened at this point, according to officials on the scene, an approximately 40 year old male fell from a height between eight and 10 feet. Precautionary measures were taken as the man–an ironworker-experienced back pain, those extra steps caused the roughly half an hour rescue effort.
“We immediately called the special operations team,” said Deputy Chief Geoff Gardell. “We were unsure of how to extricate, but so far, so good.”
There were five firetrucks, an ambulance and several police cruisers on the scene and traffic at the intersection of Front Street and Foster Street was diverted at the time of this writing.
