SALT LAKE CITY -- An accident on a construction site made for a challenging rescue for fire crews. Monday morning around 9:00, a worker fell 30 feet while preparing to pour a floor in the building under construction in Research Park near 500 South Wakara Way.

Because of the layout of the building and the building materials in the way, a complicated rigging system had to be set up to reach the man and get him down to the ground.
