Demolition debris injures construction worker at JFK
NEW YORK -- A construction worker suffered injuries during demolition of a departures runway at the now-vacant Terminal 3 at Kennedy International Airport.
A spokesman for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey said the worker was struck in the leg by falling debris Sunday morning. Spokesman Steve Coleman says the worker did not appear to be seriously injured but was walking with a slight limp afterwards.
The terminal, also known as the Worldport, is memorable for its shape, which resembles a flying saucer. Constructed more than a half century ago, the terminal once housed Pan American World Airways. Delta Air Lines began using it in 1991, but left the terminal last month. Plans call for it to someday be used for parking airplanes.
Delta did not immediately comment.
