Worker injured at Boeing Everett plant

A worker was injured in an industrial accident at the Boeing aircraft plant in Everett Monday evening.

Everett Fire Department paramedics were called to the plant shortly after 7:30 p.m. and transported the man to the Colby Campus of Providence Regional Medical Center, a department spokesman said.

No information was available from Boeing or the fire department about the extent of injuries. Information from fire dispatchers indicated the worker had stopped breathing and CPR was being administered, according to Seattle Times community news partner MyEverettNews.com.

Boeing spokeswoman Cindy Wall said emergency medical teams stationed at the plant assisted the worker before paramedics arrived.

“Safety is our number one concern and we’re concerned any time an employee encounters this type of injury,” Wall said. “Our focus is on the injured employee and his family as well. We immediately have begun an investigation of the cause so we don’t have a recurrence of anything  like this in the future.”

Wall said the accident occurred near a final assembly area, but she didn’t know the nature of the accident or what type of aircraft was involved.
