Family of Rochester Roofer Hurt in Fall Asking for Community’s Help
Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News)- The family of a Rochester roofer seriously in a fall is asking for the community’s help.
A GoFundMe has been set up by the roofer’s daughter Sarah, who said the fall happened as her dad was finishing up work for the day. The page was created last week after Sarah’s dad Casey fell 15 feet from a roof onto a concrete slab.
The GoFundMe page says Casey suffered broken ribs and fractures to his skull and spine. His daughter says he has been unconscious since the fall and that his brain has been bleeding.
The post says Casey may never be able to return to work and that the family is facing mounting medical bills. The post says Casey is facing a long road to recovery.
“It likely will be a very long road to recovery and while everyone seems hopeful, there is no guarantee he will leave the hospital the same man we knew and loved before.”
The GoFundMe effort has a goal of raising $50,000. A link to the page is available by clicking here.
