BOSTON, Feb. 5 (UPI) — Emergency responders in Boston said a construction worker who fell 30 feet was spared serious injury when he landed on bubble wrap.

A spokesman for the Boston Fire Department said the 38-year-old worker fell 30 feet off a building and landed in a pile of bubble wrap taken from the construction site’s scaffolding, WCVB-TV, Boston, reported Tuesday.

The spokesman said the worker became lodged in the bubble wrap and needed to be cut free.

The man suffered back and shoulder injuries from the fall, but the injuries were not considered serious, the spokesman said.
