Fire crews deployed a bucket truck to rescue an injured worker who had slipped on the third floor of a Wauwautosa construction site on Monday afternoon. A worker for a subcontractor of the Milwaukee firm CG Schmidt fell and was injured while working on the third floor of a project at 10401 Innovation Drive in Wauwautosa, said Mike Abuls, chief operating officer at CG Schmidt. The worker wasn’t seriously injured, but couldn’t get down from the third floor of the unfinished building without help, he said, so workers at the site called for help from emergency responders. “We responded as quickly and as responsibly as we could to get him down safe,” Abuls said. The Wauwautosa Fire Department received a call for assistance at about 12:30 p.m. Monday, and dispatched a truck equipped with a tower ladder to the scene.
