Second Avenue subway construction in May. Bess Adler, Metro

A construction worker was hospitalized on Monday morning after falling off a ladder on the Second Avenue construction site at East 69th Street and Second Avenue, the FDNY said.

An FDNY spokesman said the construction worker fell about six to eight feet at 7:35 a.m. at the construction site.

The worker, whose name wasn’t immediately released, was taken to New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center for treatment.

Photos from the scene show the FDNY used a crane to hoist the worker above ground.
