W.T.C. worker injured
A worker at One World Trade Center fell 14 feet onto a plywood floor Monday afternoon and suffered head, neck and back injuries.
The worker, Jose Jerez, 28, of the Bronx, was taken to Bellevue Hospital in serious condition. He was working on the Freedom Tower’s concrete about 100 feet off the ground when he fell, according to press reports. The Port Authority, which owns the World Trade Center site, reached Jerez quickly but initially barred the F.D.N.Y. responders from entering the site. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is investigating the accident.
