Few details available after man falls 30 feet at Carolina Quarries

ROCKWELL — It is not clear if a man who fell 30 feet early this morning at Carolina Quarries Inc. was an employee of the company, but emergency officials said he did sustain possible life-threatening injuries.
The man, whose name was not immediately available, was at the company, located off East N.C. 152. The incident occurred around 7:15 a.m.
Emergency personnel had to use an all-terrain vehicle from the Rowan County Rescue Squad in order to get to the man, who fell to the base of the quarry, said Frank Thomason, chief of emergency services.
He was evaluated and treated at the scene before being airlifted to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem. Rockwell Rural Fire Department set up a landing zone at a private airfield near the intersection of Faith Road and N.C. 152, Thomason said.
The man had broken limbs and possibly other internal injuries, he said.
Thomason could not confirm whether the man was an employee of the company. The call came from the company.
Bostian Heights Fire Department, Rowan Rescue Squad and the county office of emergency services also responded.
