Man injured after 40-foot plummet into pond in lower Deer Valley
A man plummeted 40 feet into a pond in lower Deer Valley on Saturday, suffering several injuries, the Park City Fire District says.
According to Tricia Hurd, the district’s spokeswoman, the man, a roofer, fell off a roof at the Lakeside condominiums at 12:28 p.m.
He landed in shallow water and suffered a "significant head injury," Hurd says. Other injuries were primarily to one side of his body, she says.
She reports the landing knocked the man unconscious and co-workers pulled him from the pond.
A medical helicopter took him to LDS Hospital, the authorities say.
