A 37-year-old construction worker was pierced by a piece of steel in his side at the World Trade Center site and rushed to the hospital Tuesday afternoon, authorities said.
The worker, whose name was not released, was injured at 4 World Trade Center and taken to Bellevue Hospital. His wound was not considered life-threatening, an FDNY spokesman said.
The worker was impaled by a piece of steel rod known as rebar, which is used to reinforce concrete structures.
The final steel beam at the 72-story 4 World Trade Center was lifted into place Monday. The skyscraper is expected to open in 2013.
