Man taken to hospital after fall on South Cannon Avenue

August 21, 2011

A man was taken to Meritus Medical Center on Sunday morning after Washington County Emergency Services got a call at 10:10 a.m. regarding someone falling from a roof in the 300 block of South Cannon Avenue, a 911 dispatcher said.

Neighbor Doreen Weddle said she was out back when she heard a sound involving a ladder and went to check.
“We found him,” she said.

The man, known as Eddie, was lying partway on the sidewalk and partway on the grass in front of 343 S. Cannon Ave.

Weddle said she did not know how far the man fell. She said he regained consciousness before the ambulance took him to the hospital.

A gallon of paint was sitting on a stand by a third-story window.
