In the hole

Apr 25, 2013
A boom lift that was used to do shingling work on Blair House tipped over partially this morning. Washington City administrator Brent Hinson said he is unsure if the center of gravity was wrong or if the sidewalk under the lift gave way. He said the sidewalk had been damaged in the accident. Another bucket truck was used to remove the person from the bucket and a tow truck was used to move the lift. The person in the bucket was transported to Washington County Hospital.
