Cable Wire Accident Took Place in Clay, Injured 70-Year-Old Man

Posted on May 14, 2018

A 70-year-old was injured in a cable wire accident that is being labeled a “freak accident” by police. When falls happen in the workplace, you might wonder where you can turn in your desperate time of need. Workplace accidents take lives every year, but luckily some people survive these horrific accidents.

The 70-year-old fell almost 15 feet from a scaffold this morning and was injured. He was taken to Upstate University Hospital and is expected to recover. At the time of the accident, workers from Capital Home Improvements were working on removing a cable wire that stemmed from a utility pole to a house so that they could install siding. The wire was lowered to the road and the cable wire caught in a school bus roof vent. The scaffolding was then yanked downward.

The 70-year-old struck an air conditioning unit when he fell. Luckily, he did not sustain life-threatening injuries. The bus driver and 12 students were not injured.
