Elderly man falls from Whitchurch house roof
A man believed to be in his 80s has reportedly fallen from the roof of a two-storey house in Shropshire.
He landed on a brick wall in the front garden of the property in the incident on Wrexham Road in Whitchurch shortly before 1300 BST on Monday.
The man suffered a nasty wound to his head, "but was remarkably fully conscious", an ambulance service spokeswoman said.
He was airlifted to Royal Shrewsbury Hospital.
The ambulance service spokeswoman added: "It is not known exactly what the man was doing on the roof, but he was extremely lucky not to have suffered more serious injuries."
