FITCHBURG (CBS) — A construction worker in Fitchburg was injured while on the job after he was pinned down by a window frame on Monday.

The fire department said the 911 call came in around 7:40 a.m. He was already freed by other workers within the five minutes it took for them to reach the Nursey Lane mill building, which is under renovation.

The worker, a 45-year-old man, was taken to UMass Medical Center in Worcester for leg and back injuries. They are considered non-life threatening.

He had been working with a group to remove the window frame on the fourth floor when it fell on him, according to the fire department.

Crews used a stokes basket to get him down.

A building inspector has been called to the scene. OSHA was also notified.
