Worker Injured While Delivering Papers


A man was injured on Monday while trying to climb a wrought iron fence.


David Williams, a carrier for the Fayetteville Observer, was delivering papers on Old Street. According to Sgt. Richard Mulcahy, Williams realized he had thrown a paper to a wrong address. Williams was trying to retrieve the paper, when he lost his balance on the fence and impaled his calf through the top of a spike.


Williams other foot was tangled in the fence, leaving him hanging upside down for two hours. Someone walking by saw Mr. Williams and called the police.


Williams kept his head elevated by using his belt. He had lost a great deal of blood.


Williams was transported to Cape Fear Valley Medical Center for treatment.
