After all the bales were unloaded I was making sure that they could not be knocked off the pallets we had placed them on when there was a LOUD bang and LOUDER SHREEK.
One of the teen age boys who were helping had lifted the ramp of the trailer and thought he had it pinned in place. Well the pin has a stop on it to allow you to leave it open and the boy did't know that. He thought the ramp was locked in the up posiion and let go of it. Well Katelynn was setting on the end of the trailer and the ramp 40 pounds of angel iron and wire mesh fell on her stricking her on the head and back.
This could have killed her!!!!!!! Thank God, God was looking after her.
1 She was setting far enough back and close enough to it that the ramp had not gathered full momentem (sp)
2 It hit her on the back and shoulder slowing it some before it hit her head.
Well we had a ct scan and 7 staples to the scalp last night. I know how much worse it could have been!!!!
The young man only 14 years old was scared to death. After all he was only trying to be heplfull and do what needed to be done with out being told.
Katelynn had a crush on him
