Worker Injured at Ballston Construction Site

Arlington first responders teamed up with workers at a Ballston construction site to help a worker suffering a medical emergency this morning (Monday).

Fire and rescue workers were called to the scene of the large new development at 750 N. Glebe Road around 8:30 a.m., after hearing that a person on the site needed medical attention.

Fire department spokesman Ben O’Bryant says first responders initially believed they’d need to perform a “technical rescue” to bring the person down from the construction site’s upper levels.

But he said that construction workers subsequently found “an equipment lift or an elevator,” giving first responders easier access to the patient.

O’Bryant says the person was taken to the hospital, but did not have any additional information just yet.
