A construction worker was impaled when he fell and landed on a piece of metal at the World Trade Center site Tuesday.
According to the FDNY, the 37-year-old man was working at 4 WTC when he lost his footing and fell about four feet before making impact with a piece of rebar, which punctured his side. The worker was transferred to Bellevue Hospital, and is expected to survive.
Construction workers had just added the final steel beam to WTC 4 on Monday, making it the tower the closest to completion of all the buildings in the World Trade Center complex. It is expected to be finished in the fall of 2013.
