An Oklahoma man spent some time dangling from his safety rope when he slipped while doing maintenance on a wind turbine in Sheridan Township. Bingham Ubly Fire Chief Joe Stacer said they were called to the scene on Bad Axe Road, about 1 1/2 miles south of Atwater Road just before 12 noon Friday, along with Bingham EMS. The worker from Run Energy was performing maintenance on the G.E. turbine when he slipped while checking the bolts in the nose of the turbine that connects the blades. He was hanging from the safety rope for a time. The Sigel Township Rescue team that is trained in aerial and confined spaces rescue were called, but other workers from the company were able to safely lower him to the ground. He was taken by ambulance to McLaren Thumb in Bad Axe to be checked as per company policy but he was not injured. The turbine is part of Excellon wind energy.
