Worker in Annapolis flown to Shock Trauma after fall

A man working on a renovation project in downtown Annapolis was flown to Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore early yesterday after he fell from the site of the former Hopkins Furniture Store, state workplace safety investigators said.

Around 8:45 a.m., a 21-year-old construction worker fell from a height of approximately 10 feet, according to Linda Sherman, a spokeswoman for the Maryland Occupational Safety and Health agency, a division of the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation.

The victim's identity was not immediately available. No information was available late yesterday afternoon on how the victim fell or what injuries he suffered, Sherman said.
