My boss sent myself and others to Orland Park on Tuesday to handle a commercial Heating and A/C repair, and the Ford vehicle dealership contacted the Heating and A/C maintenance center because there was no cold air in the split room or the customer lobby! It was a relatively sizzling day and the outdoor temperatures were in the 74s, but my boss sent myself and others to help with the repair.
I met 2 other employees at the task.
The commercial A/C device in Orland Park required extra hands, then shortly after I arrived, we started checking out all of the components. The cooling systems are located on the rooftop. Jack and I decided to go on the roof to check on all of the components. I started climbing up the ladder and I had our tool basket and our left hand. I was holding on to the ladder with our right hand. I lost our balance when our foot slipped on 1 of the ladder rungs, then before I could catch our balance, I fell off the ladder and down to the ground. Jack hastily came down the ladder to see if I was okay. I couldn’t move our left leg. It fell between the bottom 2 ladder rungs and twisted. I felt certain that it was broken. I told Jack that I needed someone to take myself and others to the emergency room in Orland Park. My boss called on the cell iphone when we were on the way to the emergency room. I tried to explain everything that was happening, however I was in so much pain that I was in and out of consciousness. My leg was severely fractured and had to be reset in a surgical procedure.
