The condition of a worker injured in a fall at The Cole apartments Saturday afternoon has stabilized, although he still is in critical condition, according to a spokeswoman from IU Health Methodist in Indianapolis.

Ignacio Duran Montiel, 36, of Columbus, initially was taken by Lifeline medical helicopter to the hospital with critical head injuries after falling about 12 feet from scaffolding.

Police believe a rope tied to the scaffolding became tangled in a moving vehicle, which caused Montiel and another man to fall to the ground.

That other man, whom police did not identify, suffered a shoulder injury.
