A freak accident on the east side. A construction worker was struck by falling debris outside 335 Madison avenue. The worker was hit by an electric cord that plunged 30 feet.

Officials believe the worker was trying to move a window washing scaffold when the power cord fell to the ground--hitting him on the head.

He suffered a head injury.
