A man has been taken to hospital with serious injuries after an industrial accident at a building site in Aberdeen today.
A Police Scotland spokeswoman said they were called to an incident on Charleston Road at around 8.40am.
She added: “A man has been injured as a result.”
A Scottish Ambulance Service spokeswoman confirmed the man has been taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary with “serious” injuries.
She added: “We dispatched one ambulance, a paramedic response unit and our special operations team to the scene. One male patient was transported to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.”
Earlier reports from emergency services had indicated it was a roof collapse, however police have said this was not the case, describing it as an “industrial accident”.
It is understood the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has been made aware of the incident and will attend the Stewart Milne site later today.
Inspector Graeme Penny from Police Scotland said: “A man in his 30s was taken to hospital. When he left the scene his condition was stable.
“There was no collapse in the building, it was an industrial accident.”
John Low, managing director of Stewart Milne Homes, said: “Our thoughts are with this individual and we, along with his own employer, will be monitoring his condition and providing every support to him and his family.
“We can confirm that no structure has collapsed but it would appear that some material has fallen within the building. We’ve got our full HSE team on-site to make sure it is safe and secure. Once that has been ascertained, we will begin an investigation to find out what happened.”
