Doug was at work, up on the scaffold, 10 feet high, a gust of wind n a joist or something somehow caused him t b swept off n he landed on the ground on wat part of the body I'm not sure,his head took the brunt,big gash...wen he woke bout 20 min. Later he cudnt move was disoriented...STARS airlifted him to Health Science Center,in Winnipeg.but after awhile he remembered falling. N cud talk, his vitals gud But no feeling from bout armpits down,n of course not able to move at all.MRI same day showed fractured vertebrae ,c6......which is MUCH better then if it wud of been c1 or2... Today the 17th he has slight sensation ,can move hands slightly.. Hes in surgery now as I write, 4 to 5 hrs... Will update later He doesn't remember the actual fall but remembers hearing the joists clattering down and the next thing he knew he was lying face down on the ground.
