A fire department spokesman says a Boeing worker has been seriously hurt in an accident at the company's Everett, Wash., facility.

Everett Fire spokesman Rick Robinson tells KOMO-TV ( http://is.gd/uo9NDz) that the man was somehow pinned between two wing parts of a 747 aircraft Monday night. Boeing's emergency medical team tended to the man until fire department medics arrived.

The unidentified man was taken to Providence Medical Center with what were described as serious injuries.

Boeing spokesman Jim Proulx (Proo) says in a statement that the company is focusing on the "welfare of the injured employee and the family."
