A 70-year-old was using a ladder near his front door when his wife, who was inside at the time, heard a bang. She went outside to check on him but found him on the ground. He tried to stand up but fell back down to the ground.

The man fell about 10 feet, hitting his head on the concrete path. He was flown to a major trauma center, but the damage to his head and brain was too severe. After brain surgery, he remained on life support while they attempted to get his brain function back. Unfortunately, the attempts were not successful. He was a husband, father and grandfather.

It’s hard to know what lead to the man’s accident because nobody was there to witness it, but there is no denying it. This accident was tragic. Today, we will leave this post at that. Please remember to work safely so you aren’t one of these stories we share.
