Hampton, Va. –  A worker at NASA Langley Research Center was injured Sunday morning when he fell 18 feet onto a concrete floor.

The man, a contract employer from Jacobs Engineering, was working at the facility’s steam plant when the second level metal grating he was walking on gave way.

He sustained multiple injuries as a result of the fall and was transported to Riverside Regional Medical Center.

NASA Langley officials say they have launched an investigation into the cause of the incident. OSHA will be notified.
