My boss sent myself and others to Orland Park on Friday to handle a commercial Heating and Air Conditioning repair, but the Ford automobile dealership contacted the Heating and Air Conditioning maintenance center because there was no chilly air in the cut room or the buyer lobby, it was a relatively hot afternoon and the outdoor temperatures were in the 76s, however my boss sent myself and others to help with the repair.
- I met 2 other employees at the task.
The commercial AC unit in Orland Park required extra hands, then shortly after I arrived, the two of us started checking out all of the components. The cooling systems are located on the rooftop, and 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 bin and our left hand. I was holding on to the ladder with our right hand. I lost our balance when our foot slipped on a single of the ladder rungs! Before I could catch our balance, I fell off the ladder and down to the ground. Jack suddenly came down the ladder to see if I was okay. I couldn’t transport 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 the two of us were on the way to the emergency room. I tried to explain everything that was happening, but 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.
