A construction worker was seriously injured late Tuesday morning after a wall fell in a multifamily housing development being built in Lynnwood’s City Center district, according to South County Fire. At 11:10 a.m., dispatch received a call about an injury on a construction site located at 4100 Alderwood Mall Boulevard after a wall reportedly fell on a worker, trapping him. South County spokesperson Jennye Cooper said the worker — a man in his 30s — sustained a serious injury to one of his legs. The wall that fell on the man was constructed from wood and he did not lose consciousness during the incident, she added. “There was a wall collapse with one person trapped and (firefighters) were able to get that person extracted,” she said. “The person suffered serious injuries to the lower extremities that they believe is a leg injury of some kind.” Traffic lanes were temporarily reduced on Alderwood Mall Boulevard, and Lynnwood Police Department officers were on the scene assisting emergency crews.
