An employee of an area cabinet shop was flown to a Baltimore trauma unit Friday morning after being hurt on the job.
The man, who was not named, was working in the showroom area of Carriage Hill Cabinet and Millwork on Enterprise Court near Frederick when he slipped and hit his head, Carriage Hill owner Doug Fauth said.
After being treated in an ambulance at the scene, the man was flown by Maryland State Police helicopter to R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore.
"They decided that (Frederick Memorial Hospital) didn't have the facilities to evaluate him properly, so they decided to fly him out," Fauth said.
The man was considered a priority one, the most serious injury classification, at the time he was flown to Baltimore, Frederick County Fire and Rescue Lt. Harry Elliott said.
But Fauth said he spoke with the man's wife and his injuries don't appear to be serious after an evaluation at shock trauma.
"He's fine," Fauth said. "I think he hurt his neck a little bit, but other than that, he's OK. The paramedics did a great job."
