CAPE CANAVERAL, Florida -- Just before 3:30 p.m. on Friday, a 19-year-old construction worker was seriously injured after he fell through a ceiling and landed more than 20 feet below onto a concrete floor.

According to Brevard County Fire Rescue spokesperson Lieutenant Don Slayman, the man's coworkers said he was working on the second floor of a new construction project near the 8800 block of Astronaut Boulevard when he lost his balance.  Although he sustained serious injury, his injuries are said to be not life-threatening.
