After surviving 47-story fall, construction worker moves on

On Dec. 7, 2007, two brothers were cleaning the windows of a Manhattan high rise when their scaffold broke. One brother died. The other brother survived a 47-story plunge to the ground in the scaffold. He survived, despite serious injuries. Doctors at the time were surprised that the man survived the scaffold accident. But he survived, and recovered well enough that he has even completed a 5K walk for charity.

The 58-year-old worker is suing to recover an unspecified amount of money damages for serious arm and leg injuries.

In some cases, however, construction workers find themselves in danger through no fault of their own. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) data shows that these dangers, called caught-in hazards or caught-between hazards, are one of the four major causes of fatal accidents on a construction site.
