Coworker risks life to save another: Would you do it?
CLIFTON, NJ (CNN) — A construction worker fell 40 feet into a vat of acid in New Jersey and survived, thanks to the heroics of a coworker.
The accident happened Monday afternoon at a metal tubing maker in Clifton, NJ.
The worker had burns from head to toe and was in a state of shock when fire crews arrived.
A coworker had already jumped in and pulled him out. Both were hurt but are expected to live.
Fire officials say the injured workers were part of a crew called in to add a second roof to the building.
Federal, state and local agencies are investigating.AlertMe
