A man fell an undetermined distance while working on a ship in the Fraser Shipyard Saturday morning, according to the Superior Fire Department.

Battalion Chief Vern Johnson said the worker fell aboard the John J. Boland in the forepeak, also known as the bow thruster chamber.

The department received the call for a rescue at 9:10 a.m. Rescue crews reached the fallen worker and then lifted him in a basket out of the chamber of the ship's deck.

The patient was transported to a local hospital with what appeared to be non life-threatening injuries, said Johnson.

No other information is being released at this time.
