If you see something, say something.  That's what I was told by a billboard recently.  And it seems as though there was an accident today on Orange Street in East Rock neighborhood this morning.  A man who appeared to be a worker was carried into an ambulance on a stretcher.  You might gather from the visual information that he fell possibly from the roof, or from one of the ladders that were leaning against the house.

From a safe distance, I took a couple of photos.
We all hope that workers are safe.  It's uncertain to what the conditions or the cause of the accident were.  Thanks to agencies like OSHA and Federal laws regulating the practices of construction workers, fewer accidents have taken place.

From The Bureau of Labor Statistics:  "Since 2007, fatal falls in the private construction industry have decreased by 42 percent." - 2010
