MANHATTAN, NY (NY Daily News)
A construction worker had to be loaded into a basket and lowered six flights after he fell on a piece of steel at an Upper East Side construction site Wednesday, authorities said.
The worker, a man in his 30s, suffered a serious leg and hip injury when he tumbled onto some rebar while working on Park Ave. near W. 84th St. at about 11:40 a.m., authorities said.
He was taken to New York-Presbyterian Weill Cornell Medical Center and is expected to recover, officials said.
He was working on construction of a 16-story residential apartment building when he was hurt.
