A man suffered a head injury at a construction site in Danbury this morning. 

 

Firefighters and Danbury EMS responded to Forty Acre Mountain Road and determined that the accident was due to the malfunction of a concrete pump truck's boom  which struck the worker in the head. Emergency responders encountered difficult terrain at the construction site and called in additional units to help with the rescue.

Firefighters used a rope system and a stokes basket to bring the patient up the snow covered embankment to the awaiting ambulance.  The DFD rope hoisting system was aided by Advanced Tree Removal Company. 

 

OSHA is on scene investigating.
