A construction worker fell 45 feet from atop a scaffold where he or she was applying stucco to the new Vista College building in the 1800 block of Center Street just after 10 a.m. on Jan. 3. 

Berkeley paramedics rushed to the scene, and transported the injured worker to Highland Hospital. 

Deputy Fire Chief David Orth said privacy regulations prevented him from providing the name or gender of the victim, nor any details concerning the worker’s injuries.
