Construction Accident

A construction worker gets pulled into the air, then dropped to the ground Tuesday on the UW campus.

The worker was on the third floor of the Veterinary Medicine addition when his belt got caught on equipment being lifted by a crane.
He was lifted about 15 feet into the air before his belt came unhooked.
Madison Fire's Technical Rescue team lowered the worker down from the top of the construction site.

He was taken to UW Hospital with non–life threatening injuries.
