BAYONNE -- Fire fighters responded to a call Thursday at a work site on Newman Avenue after a report of a worker who fell from the roof, a distance of approximately 30 feet. The injured victim was barely conscious when they arrived at the scene just prior to noon.
The firefighters were forced to cut a fence in the area where the victim had fallen, in order to dodge construction materials and gain access to the patient. EMS and Firefighters worked to provide medical assistance, and the 30 year old injured worker was transported by ambulance to Jersey City Medical Center for further treatment.
The Bayonne Police, Bayonne Building Dept, and OSHA were also called to the scene. The worker was later reported in stable condition.
