A roofer fell through the roof of a building along King Street this morning.
The incident happened around 10:45 a.m. at King Dry Cleaners (3425 King Street) on the corner of King Street and N. Quaker Lane, near Fairlington.
The worker reportedly suffered non-life-threatening injuries after the nearly 12-foot fall into the dry cleaning business below.
“Around 10:41 a.m. on Jan. 15, AFD responded to a call for a male who fell through the roof of a commercial building,” fire department spokeswoman Ray Evans tells ALXnow. “While working, he stepped in a soft area of an adjoining business where renovations were being done and fell through. Patient was injured, but didn’t lose consciousness at the time of the incident. AFD transported the patient to GW Hospital for treatment.”
The building, which was recently renovated after a Radio Shack store closed, also houses a Mattress Warehouse store.
