COP Banners for Wade4wireless-01

 

Let’s say a prayer for the climber (and his family) in the UK that fell on March 11th!

Some sad news that a climber working in Tingrith in the UK. The climber was over 60 feet up on a tower when he fell. As amazing as this is, he survived when he landed  on the roof of the shelter next to the tower. The fire rescue crews showed up to help him but there was an issue with moving him, so they had to take their time but they did get him to the hospital, alive.

If anyone has more information please let me know. As far as I know, this is the first fall in the UK in a very long time. Thanks to a friend on LinkedIn for letting me know about this.

Tingrith is in Bedfordshire, England, near Toddington.

If you read the story, link is below, then you can see that they took special care in getting him off of the roof and to the hospital.
