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.
