Authorities: New Jersey mall worker seriously injured in 30-foot fall from roof
Authorities say a worker at a New Jersey mall was seriously injured in a 30-foot fall from the roof over the weekend.
Roxbury police were dispatched to the Ledgewood Mall Saturday shortly after 1 p.m. after the man, a demolition-construction company worker, fell through an opening on the roof.
According to police spokeswoman Jen Dillard, the employee was airlifted to a hospital with “major trauma."
The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration, which investigates workplace incidents, was notified.
The mall is being converted into the Shops at Ledgewood Commons, with some stores remaining open and others slated to be demolished and rebuilt.
AP wire services helped contribute to this report.
