A construction worker is in critical condition after falling nearly 30 feet from a bridge construction site in Georgia.

The Telegraph reports the incident happened about 1:10 p.m. Friday in Macon.



The Bibb County Sheriff’s Office says 44-year-old Jason Searcy fell as he was walking across the metal decking of a new bridge construction area. The site runs parallel to Interstate 16 east.

Decking at the top of the bridge gave out and Searcy fell onto a concrete drainage ditch. Authorities say Searcy was taken by ambulance to Medical Center, Navicent Health. He is listed in critical condition.
