A worker was rushed to hospital after suffering burns at a building in Sunnyside Tuesday.
The man was working inside 39-35 47th Ave. — where AMS Dental Laboratory Inc. is located according to online listings — when he was burned at around 11 a.m.
It’s unclear at this time whether he was burned in an explosion.
The FDNY responded to a report of an explosion in a shed at the address. An aerial view of the address shows a shed on the back roof of the building.
There was no active fire when firefighters reached the scene.
EMS transported the victim to Cornell Hospital in serious, but stable condition.
A NYPD spokesperson said the worker may have been burned while using a machine to melt plastic.
