Man falls in underground vault on North Side

It happened this morning outside 600 W. Chicago Ave. in the River North neighborhood.

The man was apparently working on a lift that was extended about 20 feet into the air when the sidewalk collapsed.

The man fell into an underground electrical vault.

Police say the man is in fair condition at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. ComEd says it does not own the vault.
