An unidentified man was transported to the hospital Thursday afternoon for non life-threatening injuries after he fell from scaffolding into a swimming pool under construction.
Westport fire, police and Emergency Medical Services came to the aid of the man at 12:47 p.m. on May 1, at a residence on Bonnie Brook Road. The worker fell off scaffolding while using a “shotcrete hose” to build up the sides of the swimming pool with a cement mix, according to Assistant Fire Chief Larry Conklin.
Emergency personnel stabilized the worker and treated his immediate injuries on scene before he was transported to Norwalk Hospital.
Conklin said the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) sent a representative to the scene to investigate the accident.
