A construction worker in Nicholasville lost his foot in an accident at the site of the future Copper River Grill Monday morning.
“There’s a young man that was working on a piece of machinery, and evidently, he either fell off it or got his foot caught in it somehow and severed his foot,” said Charbel Joseph, founder of The Joseph Group, which is developing the property along with the nearby Keene Centre project.
The incident occurred around 7:45 a.m., according to Jessamine County EMS Chief Jerry Domidion. The man, whose name was not available as of late Monday afternoon, was stable when an ambulance arrived, Domidion said, and was transported to UK Hospital in Lexington.
Joseph said the victim was working for James C. New Contracting.
