A construction worker was saved from serious injury or worse on Monday morning when he fell 30 feet off a building, but landed on bubble wrap, a spokesman for the Boston, Massachusetts Fire Department said.

The 38-year-old worker fell from the building which is under construction with scaffolding wrapped in bubble wrap.
