Michigan Construction Worker Rescued

A Michigan construction worker had to be rescued from a high rise Monday morning after he started having heart trouble.

The worker was on the ninth floor of a condo in Grand Rapids when he doubled over in pain.

Rescue workers used a rising platform to take him down to the seventh floor.

Fire crews then carried him down a flight of stairs to the second floor, where a rope was used to lower him to a waiting ambulance.

Officials say the construction worker is in serious condition.
