Glenville-Cashiers Rescue Squad brought a victim to be airlifted from Blue Ridge School to Mission Hospital in Asheville after falling from a construction site in Glenville on Monday afternoon.
GCRS responded to call at 4:29 p.m. reporting a man had fallen 20-25 feet at a construction site.
Details are limited and his condition was not available to the public as of Monday evening when he was airlifted to the hospital at approx. 5:45 p.m. by Mountain Area Medial Airlift (MAMA).
GCRS Public Affairs Officer Nat Turner said any fall from that height could be serious.
“There’s all kinds of presumption of injury with a fall of 20-25 feet,” said Turner. “We get them out and when we hand them off, it’s out of our hands.”
