Worker hospitalized after falling from rooftop

Posted: Updated:
BRANDON, Vt. -

Firefighters in Brandon rescued a worker off a rooftop after he fell from it and then had to climb back on it to be saved.

Brandon police say a man was working on the roof of Sully's restaurant at 18 Center Street in Brandon around 10:30 p.m. Monday cleaning stove vent hoods, when he fell three stories down off the roof into a narrow space between two buildings. A co-worker who was with him managed to get a ladder down into the space so the man could climb back up to the roof. Rescue workers and firefighters were then able to use a basket attached to a ladder truck to bring the man down off the roof.

He was taken to a Rutland hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
