City Employee Injured In Fall

Rescue crews were called to help a city worker this morning, injured when a platform gave way.   Eddie Hernandez was working on the drainage system underneath a bridge in the 400 block of Electra street in Longview.

His supervisor says a 2 by 4 he was standing on, broke. Hernandez fell backward and his knee popped out of socket.   Although his injuries were minor, it took rescue crews about 20 minutes to reach him because of his location.
