A worker fell 27 feet in an accident last week at a Menards store under construction in Ontario, Ohio, according to the Mansfield (Ohio) News Journal.
Aspokesperson for the contractor on the project, FH Martin Constructors of Warren, Mich., told the newspaper that the worker fell through an opening in the structure that had just been cut.
According to the report, the worker suffered serious injuries, including two broken wrists, when he fell through the unprotected opening at the site. The man was later transferred to a Cleveland-area hospital.
The 160,000-square-foot store is expected to be completed by the first quarter of 2009. Ontario is located in north-central Ohio.
