Wayland Fire Transports Town Center Worker After Fall
The following information was supplied by the Wayland Fire Department.
A construction worker at Wayland Town Center took a fall from a roof Wednesday afternoon that resulted in a trip to the hospital.
Wayland Fire Capt. Andy Holland said the fire department responded to Wayland Town Center at about 3 p.m. Wednesday after the worker fell from one roof level down to a flat roof about 6 feet below.
Holland said the man was conscious, but complaining of back and chest pain. He was transported to the Lahey Clinic in Burlington.
According to Holland, the injured man had been working with a concrete boom, a machine that pumps liquid concrete. Holland said that it appeared the boom struck the man, knocking him from the roof on which he was working.
Holland said he does recall any other medical calls to the Wayland Town Center site throughout construction.
"They have a good safety record," Holland said. "It appears this was just an accident."
No further information was known about the worker's condition.
