A man is in critical condition after falling off a roof and landing on a BBQ grill rotisserie stand.  Danbury Fire Officials say the accident happened at a Soccer and Social Club on Federal Road around 9:30 yesterday morning.  The man, 34-year old David Mendes, fell 8 to 10 feet from a roof.  Firefighters and EMS used a metal cutting saw to remove the metal object from the stand.  He needed surgery to remove the  foot-long piece of metal post from Mendes' left side.  The Danbury Fire Department remained on the scene to wait for OSHA. He was reportedly on the roof to inspect an exhaust fan that was not working properly.  It's not clear if Mendes was being paid or volunteered.
