Story Originally Reported as a Fall
Construction accidents can be catastrophic as we all know. This accident was first reported in error as a man falling 40 feet into a hole by a local news agency. We are so happy to learn that this information was in error. The man did not fall 40 feet into a hole. He was already in the hole working 40 feet below ground. Some details were not readily available. Like what fell on him and what the object weighed.
The good news is that the West Sacramento construction worker injured was helped quickly. A crane already in use at the construction site helped speed up the rescue process. Workers were able to quickly get him out from his location below ground. This saved a lot of valuable time!
The West Sacramento construction worker injured was transported to UC Davis Medical Center. The Edward A Smith Law Offices wish him a full and speedy recovery.
