BREAKING: Man Falls at Va. Square Construction Site

Virginia Square construction fall(Updated at 3:00 p.m.) Fire and rescue personnel responded this afternoon to a report of a man who fell about 30 feet from a construction site in Virginia Square.

The fall happened just after 2:20 p.m. at 3446 Fairfax Drive, near the intersection with N. Lincoln Street. According to scanner traffic, the victim was conscious, but not moving.

Firefighters and medics had unimpeded access to the victim, so a technical rescue was not necessary, according to ACFD spokesman Capt. Bill Shelton. The victim was transported via ambulance to the trauma at George Washington University Hospital. So far, there’s no word on his condition.

Arlington County police and Virginia occupational safety officials are investigating the incident.
