A construction worker was injured in a 20 foot fall from a scaffold while he was painting at the Juanita Bay Pump Station Replacement project reports Seattle’s KIROTV.com. The man, who was an employee of Cascade Painting, had to be rescued as the scaffolding he was working on fell on top of him. The construction accident occurred in the 9300 block of Juanita Drive reported Annie Kolb-Nelson, a spokesperson for the Department of Natural Resources and Parks.
The man was said to have been conscious and alert after the accident but he had to be extricated from the scaffolding before he could be taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. Kolb-Nelson said his injuries were to his head and chest and she classified them as non-life threatening.
