Two Seriously Injured After Center City Construction Accident

Yesterday, a 52-year-old construction worker who fell 30 feet from the steel frame of a building he was working on at 19th and Arch was rushed to Hahnemann University Hospital, where’s he’s in critical condition. Meanwhile, at the same site, a fireman suffered a seizure that resulted in head injuries. He’s also at Hahnemann, in stable condition. It’s unclear whether the two incidents are connected. It’s also not clear if there’s anything more to this incident than a couple of freak accidents. But after the Market Street collapse a couple of weeks ago, an extra level of scrutiny will no doubt be paid to the construction site. [Daily News]
