Crews rushed to the construction site of a Center City Philadelphia high-rise building Friday after a worker suffered a medical emergency dozens of stories high.
The rescue effort started around 10:25 a.m. on the 41st floor at the site where Arthaus Philadelphia is being built along South Broad Street near Spruce Street, Philadelphia Deputy Fire Chief Gerald Boyle said at the scene.
The 60-year-old construction worker was in stable condition as he was being lowered down to an ambulance after being stabilized, Boyle said.
A short time later, a person on a stretcher could be seen being loaded into an ambulance. He was then transported to the hospital.
