A Roosevelt Island tipster reports this morning:

Bunch of fire trucks and ambulances

at Cornell site.
I asked Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC) Public Safety Department Director Jack McManus what happened today at the Cornell Tech Roosevelt Island campus construction site. Chief McManus replied:
A construction worker fell 12-15 feet from a scaffold. He was conscious, alert, and taken to Elmhurst General for assessment.
