BROWNSVILLE – A 35-year-old man fell 50 feet from a wind turbine Tuesday afternoon.

At 12:15 p.m. Tuesday, the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of a man who had fallen 200 feet off of a wind turbine at N12048 West Line Road just outside the village of Brownsville. The initial call stated that the man, who was wearing a rescue device, fell fast from wind tower No. 38.

Initial investigation showed the man fell 50 feet and was wearing a harness that slowed his fall, according to Capt. Trace Frost of the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office. He was conscious and talking, and sustained injuries on his lower legs.

Frost was not sure how serious his injuries were or what he was doing at the tower.

The male was transported by Flight for Life to ThedaCare Regional Medical Center–Neenah.

Brownsville First Responders and Mayville EMS assisted at the scene.
