News outlets report the 28-year-old man was rolled over at the Louis Armstrong International Airport's Kenner construction site the morning of Sept. 21. It was the victim's second day of work.

Kenner police spokesman Lt. Brian McGregor says the man suffered a collapsed right lung, multiple pelvic fractures, and some possible internal bleeding. Police don't currently believe his injuries are life-threatening.

Police haven't issued any citations in the incident because it occurred on private property.
