Worker rescued from Sunny Isles Beach construction site after accident

A worker who was injured in a Sunny Isles Beach construction accident Tuesday morning had to be rescued and lowered to the ground.

The accident was reported Tuesday morning at a beachfront construction project for the Ritz-Carlton Residences on Collins Avenue.

Sky 10 was above the construction accident as Miami-Dade Fire Rescue crews were helping to raise the injured worker out of an opening on the top of the not-yet-finished building.

A crane was used to lift the worker out of the opening and lower him to the ground, with a firefighter clinging onto the rescue basket.

The worker was carried into the back of a waiting ambulance and taken to a hospital. He appeared to be conscious throughout.

It wasn't immediately known how the worker was injured.
