A construction worker suffered a serious injury Wednesday while assisting in building a portion of a science building at Homewood-Flossmoor High School’s south wing, according to the village of Flossmoor and High School District 233.

The worker was transported to a hospital but neither their status or identity was not released by either the village or the school. School continued after 11:10 a.m., when the accident occurred, and no students or teachers were harmed, according to the district.

“While there was very limited opportunity for students or staff to have seen the accident based on its location at the construction site, the school’s Counseling Department is prepared to speak with any students or staff members who are experiencing reactions,” the statement read.
