A guy near Denver named Glenn Elvenholl was on his roof hanging Christmas lights last Friday while his 8-year-old son held the ladder.
Then in the middle of it, he realized it was kind of dumb. So he started to climb down, but the ladder slid out from under him, and he FELL about eight feet.
He ended up with a broken leg and dislocated ankle . . . needed two surgeries . . . and he’ll be laid up for the holidays. So he won’t be hanging any more lights this year.
But the lights on his house are UP now. Because after he got loaded into an ambulance, a bunch of firefighters stuck around, and THEY finished the job for him.
Glenn’s wife Sandra took a photo of a fireman named John Metzler hanging them.
