A construction worker is recovering in hospital after suffering a serious cut to his wrist while working atop a crane this afternoon.

The 58-year-old man was 60 metres above the ground at the intersection of Elgin Street and Laurier Avenue West when he accidentally sliced his wrist trying to cut open a grease tube.

The crane operator suffered a “serious arterial bleed,” said paramedics, who arrived at the scene just after 1 p.m.

A mechanic was also on the crane when the accident happened. He gave the bleeding man first aid and got him back to the ground.

The injured man is in stable condition.
