Emergency crews rescue worker, rushed to hospital with significant but non-life threatening injuries

A construction worker became injured at the site of the new courthouse in Abbotsford after a boom lift tipped over and flung him against the adjacent wall.

Emergency crews arrived at the scene around 7:15 a.m., Jan. 22, and had to perform a technical rescue on the injured worker.

The worker was rushed to hospital after suffering significant, but non-life threatening injuries.

The accident was caused when the ground gave out underneath the weight of the machine. WorksafeBC is investigating.

This is the second time in recent months that emergency crews have rescued someone from the site of the new courthouse on Trethewey Street. On Oct. 4, 2019, emergency crews had to scale a multi-story construction crane to rescue its operator, who had suffered a medical emergency inside.
