(Updated at 2 p.m.) A construction worker was injured after falling about 20 feet downtown.

The incident happened on the 1100 block of 15th St. NW some time around 12:30 p.m. today.

A man was working at the construction site when he was hit with a beam and fell below grade, D.C. Fire and EMS spokesman Doug Buchanan said. The worker’s injuries are non-life-threatening and he was conscious at the scene.

This isn’t the first time firefighters have come to the rescue of someone at this construction site. A man injured his leg and had to be rescued there last month.
