A man has been taken to hospital after an industrial accident near King and Bathurst Streets at the site of a new condominium project.

People in the area told CBC News bricks fell on top of the man Saturday morning while he was at work.

Toronto Fire Services used a crane to help free the construction worker from the second floor.

Live wires above made the rescue a challenge, but they managed to get the worker safely down.

He was rushed to hospital but he's expected to recover.
