Man in serious condition after fall
An Elkmont man, injured in a fall Saturday, was listed in serious condition Sunday afternoon at Huntsville Hospital.
Jeffery Davis, 39, of Elkmont was airlifted from his home on Shipley Hollow Road after falling about 6 p.m. Saturday.
Elkmont Volunteer Fire Chief Jeff McMunn said Davis suffered “life-threatening injuries.” He said Davis fell from a hunting stand mounted about 4 feet above his barn’s roofline.
“I think he fell from (the stand) and actually struck the roof and then came on down,” McMunn said.
