A construction worker has been taken to hospital after falling around 150 feet (46 metres) at a work site in Markham.
Emergency crews were called to the site at Ninth Line and 16th Avenue at around 10 a.m.
They arrived to find the worker trapped in a confined space.
It took firefighters more than two hours to free the worker, who was then transported to hospital. The injuries are not believed to be life-threatening, York Regional Police said.
The Ministry of Labour attended the scene.
