CDOT employee falls while making repairs to Randolph Street Bridge
A Chicago Department of Transportation employee fell while making repairs to the Randolph Street Bridge.
It happened just before noon in the Loop.
CDOT sent a crew out to do routine maintenance work on the bridge, high above the chicago river.
Somehow the repairman lost his footing and fell 15 feet.
He landed down in a hole right by the barings that lower and raise the bridge.
A rescue team rushed to the scene and worked frantically to pull the worker to safety.
The 59-year-old repairman was rushed to Northwestern Hospital with multiple injuries. None of those injuries, however, are life-threatening.
Doctors say he’s expected to make a full recovery.
