A construction worker collapsed Wednesday on the construction site of a new Moffitt Cancer Center clinic, police said.
Jose Perez, 36, was in stable condition Wednesday afternoon after being lifted off the roof of the building by crane.
University Police Department Lt. Chris Daniel said Perez may have suffered from heat exhaustion. Perez was safely removed from the roof, Daniel said.
?They used the crane and a concrete barrel to lift him from the top floor,? he said.
Daniel said the details of the incident were unclear because emergency crews had trouble talking with Perez since he doesn?t speak English.
Mike Klingebiel, spokesman for UP, said Perez was removed from the roof by crane because emergency crews couldn?t get him down due to the building being in the early stages of construction.
Perez?s co-workers left shortly after the ambulance took him to University Community Hospital.
They would not comment on the incident.

There were stretches where we played […]
