MANHATTAN — A worker was injured at 3 World Trade Center Thursday, according to officials.

One person suffered a non-life threatening injury, FDNY tweeted.

The real-estate group handling the building released the following statement on Friday: “A construction worker injured his leg this afternoon while he was dismantling a sheetrock and plywood wall within the building. The injury is not life-threatening, he has been transported to the hospital and we wish him well.”
