Danbury Firefighters + Local Tree Company Rescue Injured Worker
A construction worker was rescued by Danbury firefighters today (January 11) after he was injured on the job.
According to a post published on the Danbury Fire Department's Facebook page, Engine Company 24 and Danbury EMS responded to a 911 call reporting that an accident had occurred at the construction site on Forty Acre Mountain Rd.
When firefighters and emergency personnel arrived, they were able to determine that the injury happened when the boom pump on a concrete truck (pictured above) malfunctioned and struck an unidentified worker in the head.
Because of the rough terrain of the site, Squad Company 1 and Engine Company 23 of the DFD were called in to assist with the rescue, while Deputy Chief Meehan supervised.
The responders then were assisted by Advanced Tree Removal of Danbury with the use a system of ropes and pulleys, which allowed for the injured worker to be hoisted up from the basement in which the injury occurred.
The injured worker was brought to Danbury Hospital for a full evaluation, while OSHA went to the construction site for a full investigation.
A job well-done by all involved.
