Minnesota man dies in fall from 2nd floor sliding door
Authorities say a central Minnesota man fell to his death through his home’s second-level sliding door, which does not have a patio or deck on the other side.
The Star Tribune reports that 40-year-old Chad Kraemer died after falling 10 to 12 feet at his home in Collegeville Township.
The Stearns County Sheriff’s Office says deputies were called to the scene about 4:40 a.m. Sunday. The Cold Spring Fire Department rescue squad – which includes Kraemer as a member – responded to the call.
Kraemer had been with the rescue squad for 19 years and was part of a third generation that owns Kraemer Trucking and Excavating. He is survived by a wife and three children.
