Worker Injured From Fall at Construction Site

from smdailyjournal.com 

A steel worker was injured Tuesday morning after falling at the construction site of a new Facebook building in Menlo Park, fire officials said.

According to Menlo Park Fire Protection District officials, at 8:35 a.m. firefighters responded to a report of an injured worker at Facebook's new building 21, which is under construction.

The worker was on a steel frame on the fourth floor when a piece of decking or steel he stepped on partially dislodged and he fell 10 to 15 feet. His safety harness and rigging stopped his descent before he made contact with the third floor, fire officials said.

Fellow steel workers quickly assisted the victim by unclipping him from his safety rigging, and put him on the floor. The victim suffered significant pain, bruising and abrasions, fire officials said.
