The Globe reports a construction worker plunged 30 feet at a Brighton construction project today but was saved by the plastic sheeting with which the building is wrapped.
Firefighters, in fact, had to cut him out of the plastic, in which he was ensnared 12 feet off the ground. Initial reports had the man trapped in bubble wrap.
