The man who fell off a roof in Danbury and landed on a BBQ grill rotisserie stand is reported in stable condition at Danbury Hospital. 34-year old David Mendes fell 8 to 10 feet and needed surgery to remove the foot-long piece of metal post from his left side.
He was reportedly on the roof to inspect an exhaust fan that was not working properly.
Mendes is a board member of the Soccer and Social Club on Federal Road where the accident happened. The Occupational Health and Safety Administration is investigating whether they have jurisdiction or if Mendes volunteered his services.
The Abbott Technical High School graduate is an intern with a local electrical firm, according to his Facebook page.
