A construction worker was injured Tuesday afternoon, Feb. 6, when he fell from a steel girder at the under-construction Ash Point Community School.

The worker is believed to have suffered broken ribs, Regional School Unit 13 Business Manager Peter Orne said. Orne said he spoke with the general contractor, who said the worker simply missed the girder while walking and fell.

The man fell from about 12 feet. The incident occurred shortly before 3 p.m.

Additional details were not immediately available.
