MILLCREEK — A construction worker was critically injured Tuesday after falling at a construction site in Millcreek, police said.

About 1:46 p.m., the 23-year-old man fell from a six-story scaffolding onto another roof at St. Mark's Hospital, said Unified Police Lt. Shane Manwaring.

"They were able to get him off the roof and into the hospital," he said.

Homicide detectives originally responded to investigate, but the incident was determined to be an industrial accident and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration is now the lead investigative agency.

The man remained hospitalized in critical condition late Tuesday. Manwaring did not have additional details about his injuries.
