(Updated at 10:05 a.m. on 2/7/2023) A power outage has left construction workers on a high-rise in Tysons stranded 13 stories in the air.
Fairfax County Fire and Rescue units are on the scene at 1800 Chain Bridge Road in Scotts Run after one worker fell from just above some raised scaffolding.
Responders were able to rescue the worker by pulling him onto a balcony, and he’s now being evaluated by emergency medical personnel.
However, two other workers were left stranded on the scaffolding due to a power outage in the building, according to the department.
Technical rescue crews were ultimately able to assist them. No injuries were reported from the incident.
Heming, the building where the workers got stuck, is 28 stories tall and will have 410 apartment units when completed. It will also feature 38,000 square feet of retail space and a three-floor outdoor plaza. Construction is expected to finish around the middle of this year.
