Hello fellow buzzers! My name is Sam Neterval-Quiel. On 02/22/2021, I took a 50 ft fall while working in a 83hd arbor pro lift machine. Currently from what I understand, it is still being processed and examine to conclude why it failed. My post is meant to describe my experience. I can't fully confidently recall what happened, but I believe I stayed inside the basket during the fall. Once the bucket hit the ground I fell out of the basket and fell into the snow. Co-workers followed there assignment to call first responders and stick next to me and get me rescued. I am super thankful for there decisions. I didn't come to consciousness until 02/25/2021. Thats when I found out my injuries. I broke 4 ribs, punctured a lung, broke 2 vertebra in my neck, a major bone in my pelvic and cracked my collar bone. None of the health workers could tell me exactly when I would fully heal. I estimate it will be 6-8 months of recovering. For what it is, I am super grateful with my luck not dying or becoming paralyzed. I also would like to thank everyone who has donated into the go fund account. It means so much for me! Currently Im home and will continue recovering and healing myself back into being normal. I wish everyone well and hope everyone avoids getting injured during tree work.
