Firefighters rescued a worker who fell 20 or so feet off a ladder Monday morning into the basement of a new home under construction in Ridgewood.

Rescuers brought a Stokes basket and ropes along after the 10:30 a.m. mishap on North Monroe Street.

After they got him out through a window well, the Ridgewood Volunteer Ambulance Corps rushed the 28-year-old worker to the trauma unit at St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center in Paterson.

He complained of pain in his back, leg and hand, Police Chief Jacqueline Luthcke said.

A paramedic team from The Valley Hospital also responded.

Boyd A. Loving took the photos and contributed to this story.
