Gert's Dirt: Ladder safety

Email News Alerts
 
From Donna Bellino
 
I had an injury a few years ago after a fall from a ladder. I was using a step-ladder, but I hadn't opened it up and locked it into place. Instead, I had leaned it up against the outside wall of the house. I placed it in the sandy ground, grabbed the hummingbird feeder and up I went. I only got to the second rung when the ladder tipped in the sand and I fell. I had a badly fractured ankle that required surgery. I was in the hospital for three days.
