The Norwalk Fire Department was called to the Roton Point Club, in the Rowayton section of Norwalk, for a worker that fell approximately 12’ from scaffolding. The accident happened around 2 p.m. Wednesday afternoon in a 15’ deep pool, that was being repaired.

Norwalk Hospital paramedics had already treated and stabilized the patient prior to the Fire departments arrival and needed assistance in getting the patient out of the pool to ground level.

The patient, a man in his 30’s suffered a serious leg injury in the fall and was transported to Norwalk Hospital.
