(Updated at 2:40 p.m.) Arlington first responders were called to the construction site of the new Alice West Fleet Elementary School this afternoon to rescue a worker.
The worker in need of assistance was located on the second floor of the new school, which is being built adjacent to Thomas Jefferson Middle School at 125 S. Old Glebe Road.
Fire department spokesman Ben O’Bryant told ARLnow that the man was injured after falling off a ladder around around 1:15 p.m. today (Wednesday).
Firefighters then used a ladder truck to transport the worker down from the building’s second floor.
The worker was then taken to a local hospital, where he’s in “serious condition with non-life threatening injuries,” O’Bryant said.
