Man hit and injured by demolition debris

An Orlando man is in the hospital after an eight-inch piece of reinforcing bar hit him seconds after the Amway Arena was demolished. Nearly 200 pounds of explosives were used to implode the Orlando Magic’s former home.

According to police reports, the 33 year-old man was nearly two blocks away from the demolition site when he was injured. A friend says he remembers hearing a whistling sound and feeling small pieces of concrete hit him.

His wife told the media that he has a broken fibula and will have surgery this week. The man’s medical bills have been paid for by the president of Dykon Explosive Demolition Corp.
