HURRICANE – A Buck’s Ace Hardware employee was taken to the hospital Wednesday after he fell off the roof of the Hurricane business and sustained head injuries.
At about 4 p.m., Hurricane Valley Fire SSD responders were dispatched to Buck’s Ace Hardware on reports that an employee had fallen from the roof.
The man, an employee of the hardware store who is approximately in his 20s, Fire Capt. Nick Wright said, was up on a ladder when the incident occurred. Wright said he doesn’t how far the man fell, but he fell backward and hit his head.
“He doesn’t remember falling, doesn’t remember what he was doing,” Wright said.
The man sustained a laceration to the back of his head and was transported to Dixie Regional Medical Center in St. George by Hurricane Valley Fire SSD.
Wright did not know the man’s current condition as this report is published, but he said the injuries did not appear severe at the scene.
“Just a laceration and just kind of a goose egg, a bump on the back of the head,” Wright said.
Management on duty at Buck’s Ace Hardware declined to comment about the incident.
