A construction worker is being treated for injuries after being lowered from a 30-story building in downtown West Palm Beach.

Video of the rescue showed the injured worker and a West Palm Beach Firefighter dangling in mid-air for the daring drop to the ground from the 13th floor. Paramedics then rushed the injured man to the hospital.

West Palm Beach Fire Rescue said a wall of rebar fell on the man at a building near Quadrille Boulevard and 4th Street, just north of the State Attorney's Office.

The owner of the building, Jeff Greene, told CBS12 News the project involves two 30-story towers.

No word on the man's condition.
