"Using ingenuity and teamwork, firefighters used the on-site construction crane to rescue the worker that was more than 20 feet below grade, and then used a stokes basket operation to limit his movement, and prevent further injury," wrote officials on the Facebook page.

Officials say the worker was transported to Fairfax INOVA Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
