A construction worker is in critical condition after falling nearly 30 feet from a bridge construction site in Macon.

The incident happened about 1:10 p.m. Friday, according to a release from the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office.

Jason Searcy, 44, fell as he was walking across the metal decking of a new bridge construction area on Spring Street, deputies say. The site runs parallel to Interstate 16 east.

Decking at the top of the bridge gave out and Searcy fell onto a concrete drainage ditch. He was taken by ambulance to Medical Center, Navicent Health. He was listed in critical condition Friday afternoon, according to the release.

Anyone with information should contact the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office at 478-751-7500.
