— A 32-year-old man is in the hospital after falling from the second floor of a construction site.

Witnesses say he tried to climb to the next floor when his ladder slipped, but failed. He fell about 20 feet to the ground.

The worker was taken to the hospital and treated for a broken arm. His supervisor said this is the first accident at the site since the crew started work three months ago.
