    A man was injured at a construction site in Danbury this morning when a concrete pump truck boom malfunctioned and struck him in the head and OSHA is investigating, according to the Danbury Fire Department.

    Danbury Fire Dispatch received a 911 call just after 9 a.m. reporting the injury on Forty Acre Mountain Road and emergency crews responded to the scene.

    Because of difficult terrain, additional crews, including Squad Company 1 and Engine Company 23, were called in and used a rope system and a stokes basket to bring the patient up the snow-covered bank to an ambulance, which brought the man to a hospital.

    Advanced Tree Removal Company also provided assistance.

    OSHA responded and is investigating because the incident was on a construction site.
