Firefighters responded Thursday afternoon to what had been reported as a partial wall collapse on the 46th floor of 3 World Trade Center, the 80-story Silverstein Properties tower that is still undergoing some interior construction. A worker was taken to Bellevue Hospital with a non-life threatening injury, according to an FDNY spokeswoman, who said the collapse report was unfounded.  

Silverstein Properties spokesman Dara McQuillan said in a statement that the worker injured his leg while removing a plywood and sheetrock interior wall.

The building, which officially opened at a ribbon cutting ceremony in June, is 38 percent rented.
