A man fell about 30 feet off a roof and onto a patio Wednesday afternoon near Woodstock, suffering injuries that are potentially life-threatening, officials said.

Crews with the Woodstock Fire/Rescue District responded about 4:30 p.m. Wednesday to a home on the 10400 block of Saddlebred Trail and found a man who had fallen onto a brick patio, spokesman Alex Vucha said.

 

The man was part of a construction crew working on the roof, Vucha said. The extent of the injuries called for a LifeNet medical helicopter, which landed in a soccer field off Creekside Drive in Wonder Lake.

The man was flown to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville, Vucha said. He had multiple injuries, which were described as "serious, potentially life-threatening."
