Wind Tower Injury In Bureau County

Posted by wlpo on November 19, 2010

What a place to have your back go out.

Rescue crews responded to a call about a man injuring his back Thursday morning while he was working on a wind turbine near Wyanet.  The worker was apparently doing maintenance work on a tower when he leaned too far back in a harness, hurting his back.  He was unable to get down from the tower on his own, so a crane was brought in to bring him down.

The worker was taken to Perry Memorial Hospital in Princeton.
