Witnesses tell Channel 2 Action News the woman was pinned by the debris.
"It took two of us to push the door and get her inside,” said the witness. “Honestly, I thought a car had hit the door and was pinning her. I was happy to see it was just a piece of the roof."
A building inspector says a crew was working on the facade earlier in the day.
The building is closed for the time being.
The woman was taken to the Grady Memorial Hospital for non-life threatening injuries.
