Construction worker air-lifted to hospital

A construction worker was rushed to hospital by air ambulance Tuesday morning after a wall collapsed at a commercial development in South Surrey.

The accident occurred about 10 a.m.

The unidentified man was apparently injured by a metal reinforcing rod.

A helicopter landed at a Southridge School playing field across the street from the work site at 160 Street and 26 Avenue, and flew the injured worker to hospital.

His condition and the extent of his injuries were unknown as of Wednesday.
