A worker was hospitalized Tuesday after falling 35 feet from a ladder onto a secondary roof at an industrial building in Hawthorne.

Members of Hawthorne Engine Companies #3 and #4 and Rescue Company #5 got the victim onto a backboard before carrying him down three flights inside the Loretto Avenue building in a basket stretcher.

A paramedic team from The Valley Hospital assisted Hawthorne EMS with patient evaluation and treatment.

The victim was transported to St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center. His condition couldn't immediately be determined.
