2 injured at treatment plant (same plant I was hurt at almost 4 years ago)

I fell without a safety harness in December of 07. I had no training in fall protection when I was lent to the plant for what was to be a few weeks. A piece of rebar was all that stopped me from falling to my death.

Two workers were injured Tuesday morning when they fell nearly 20 feet off of scaffolding at a construction site in Sarpy County.

The two men were both wearing safety harnesses, but one worker hit the ground.

Jared Kirkendall, 27, of Auburn, Neb., was flown to the Nebraska Medical Center with head injuries after his safety harness failed to stop his 17-foot fall, said Sarpy County Sheriff's Capt. Monty Daganaar.

John Meyers, 44, of Council Bluffs, was taken by ambulance to the Nebraska Medical Center with chest and rib injuries after his harness pulled him up short of the ground, Daganaar said.
