ATLANTIC CITY — A Revel worker is in in critical condition after falling off a ladder Thursday afternoon.
An ambulance was called to the site at 1:50 p.m. for a man who fell and hit his head, police Sgt. Monica McMenamin said. Police were not called to the site, she added.
James Paris was listed in critical condition at AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center's City Campus, a nursing supervisor said Thursday evening. AtlantiCare spokeswoman Jennifer Tornetta said Friday that Paris' family requested that no additional information about his condition be released.
Revel spokeswoman Lisa Johnson confirmed that there was an accident at the site, but said she did not have any information on the victim.
The site is run by Tishman Construction Corp.
"A worker on site fell from a ladder early this afternoon," spokesman John Gallagher said in an emailed statement. "He was transferred to the hospital for treatment. The matter is under investigation. We have no further comment regarding his condition at this time."
This is the second accident in which a worker badly hurt at the site this month. Two weeks ago, Bryan Bradley, 40, of Linwood, was killed after the cement mixer he was working on was struck by lightning. Another worker suffered injuries to his hands in the incident, and has since been released from the hospital.
The Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration office opened an investigation into that incident Sept. 16, the day after Bradley was killed. They have six months to complete it.
OSHA could not be reached late Thursday for comment on the latest incident. The office is typically called to any work-related accidents. An investigation was also started about 18 months ago when storm winds damaged a crane there. There were no known citations listed for Revel, a spokeswoman said when asked earlier this month.
