A 48-year-old construction worker working at the World Trade Center site has sustained serious but non-life-threatening injuries in a construction accident. A steel plate at the site somehow became dislodged and fell on the workers head. Fortunately, the worker was wearing a hardhat at the time, preventing the worst of the damage from occurring. Nevertheless, the 48-year-old carpenter was quickly taken to a nearby hospital and treated for his injuries, which include multiple fractures and a broken leg.
The injury is another in a long line of construction accidents which have occurred at the site. Fortunately, the injuries resulting from these accidents have been relatively minor for the most part, and this accident also appears to match that trend.
