Worker, 29, Seriously Injured In 3-Story Fall From Balcony

The New York lawyers at Block O’Toole & Murphy are reporting on a serious construction site fall in Auburn, New York.

An unidentified 29-year-old man was seriously injured when he fell three stories at a construction site in Auburn, NY this morning. The man was airlifted to Upstate University Hospital in Syracuse. He is feared to have suffered traumatic and potentially disabling back injuries, but, fortunately, is in stable condition.

The accident happened at about 7:45 a.m. on Tuesday when the 29-year-old fell at a construction site in Auburn, according to the Auburn Fire Department. At the time of his fall, the man was working at the Calamar Construction site in Auburn. The construction project, known as the Calamar housing project, is located at 136 Standart Avenue, where a $10 million senior living facility is being built. The man fell off of a third-floor balcony of a housing complex that is under construction at the site and landed in a patch of mud on the ground below, according to Auburn Fire Department Assistant Chief Ed Sherman. Further details about how the accident occurred are emerging.
