A construction worker was rushed to Evangelical Community Hospital while working on a University project around noon on Sept. 11.

A Public Safety officer called an ambulance for the 28-year-old worker, who was exhibiting symptoms of heat exhaustion.

At the time, the worker and several others were working on the site of a new chilled water storage tank located directly adjacent to Health Services on campus. The storage tank will be used to air condition future upperclassmen housing to be built on the new South Campus, according to James Knight, senior associate director of Energy and Utilities.

The Facilities Department declined to comment on the condition of the worker, citing privacy laws.
