Worker Critically Injured by Loose Hose Coupling

I didn't hear where this incident occurred- but around 10 a.m. Tuesday morning- the  medical report of a man apparently hurt at a worksite was monitored here at CSW...

It happened somewhere in the eastern part of Kansas City KS- when- according to the KC-KS FD-EMS report the man "was struck in the head by a hose coupling that came loose."

The paramedic reported that the coupling "weighed 25-30 pounds" and the man was "knocked out" and remained unconscious during his ride to the University of Kansas Medical Center.

The man's condition was considered critical.
