One person has been flown by helicopter ambulance from Westar Energy's Lawrence Energy Center this morning after a report that a worker there fell from two stories.
Medical supervisors on the scene have reported to Douglas County emergency dispatchers that the injured person's injuries were believed to not be life threatening.
Around 9:30 a.m. crews with the Wakarusa Township Fire Department and Lawrence-Douglas County Fire & Medical made their way to the energy center at 1250 N. 1800 Road. It is home to a coal-fired plant on the northwest outskirts of the city.
Douglas County Sheriff's officers were also making their way there to investigate the 20-foot fall, said sheriff spokeswoman Lt. Kari Wempe.
After 10 a.m. a LifeStar helicopter ambulance left the scene with the patient. Generally area patients transported by helicopter ambulance are flown to the Kansas University Hospital in Kansas City, Kan., but dispatchers and emergency personnel did not immediately disclose the hospital destination this morning.
