The STARS air ambulance touched down in Niverville Thursday morning and transported to hospital a construction worker who suffered a fall from an unspecified height.

The labourer, a male in his 40s, was working on Niverville’s new high school when the incident occurred, said Niverville fire captain Spencer Hunt.

He sustained unknown injuries and was placed on a backboard as a precaution, but was conscious and talking to first responders, Hunt said.

Hunt could not confirm if the man was wearing a safety harness when the fall occurred.

Firefighters created a landing area in a small field between the construction site and a nearby dog park for the helicopter, which departed the scene at 11:40 a.m.
