Flight 029

OK, maybe it’s 030, I think i forgot one. Anyway this was an absolutely beautiful day for anything…for flying, biking, even bananafish. In fact, it was a perfect day for bananafish, but that’s a different (JD Salinger) story.

This fellow fell 25 feet off of scaffolding onto his head. Directly. Got up & went to a friend’s house to lie down and sleep. EMTs had to convince him to let them take him to the hospital. We met them at a ball field in a tiny little town in the middle of the coal fields. He said he didn’t want to go, I told him he had to.

He ended up with an epidural bleed, multiple skull, face & orbital fractures, but so far will not require any surgery. He was admitted and they’ll keep an eye on him.
