The man was working at the Bennett House apartment building being constructed on the corner of Churchill Avenue and Andrews Street when the accident occurred.
He sustained injuries when his right hand apparently became caught in a piece of machinery. He was assessed by firefighters from the St. John’s Regional Fire Department’s Kent's Pond fire station and stabilized before Eastern Health paramedics took him to hospital.
The injured worker was conscious and able to walk to the ambulance. The RNC and government safety inspectors are investigating the incident.
