Reporters tweeted on Thursday that there was a “medical emergency” on the White House complex that involved a worker falling.

Eamon Javers, a Washington correspondent for CNBC, tweeted that the Secret Service confirmed there was an “emergency” and noted the presence of two Hazmat trucks and multiple ambulances.

“Unclear what’s happening, but it is a robust response,” Javers explained.

He later followed up with another image and indicated that a worker fell but “will be fine.”

David Martosko, an editor for the Daily Mail, confirmed the presence of emergency vehicles and that someone was involved in a fall.

“EMS are reporting that someone fell 10 feet,” he said.

CBS News posted its own video of the scene near the White House and indicated that the incident is “not serious.”

DC Fire and EMS said a patient “fell 10 feet” but is not suffering from serious injuries.
