A construction worker at the site of Flushing‘s SkyView Parc condominium development was injured when a 70-pound metal beam fell on his back on Thursday morning, authorities reported.

Police said the 31-year-old man was hit with the debris at 131-07 40th Road at around 7:42 a.m.

According to the Fire Department, the worker suffered bodily trauma but was conscious and alert. Paramedics took him to New York/Presbyterian Hospital for treatment of his injuries; he was listed in stable condition.

The man was likely working on the site of two condominiums towers being built on the site as part of a multi-phase luxury development located above The Shops at SkyView Center, a 700,000-square-foot retail mall. Three residential towers will ultimately be built and the first has already been completed, with all of its units entirely sold out.
