Is a 55-year-old man too old to be tasked with putting up Christmas lights?
Some are asking that question after a man of that vintage was rushed via ambulance to hospital for treatment after falling from his roof at 12:45 pm Wednesday.
He fell from his ladder while hanging Christmas lights, hitting his head. It was a 10-15 foot drop.
Peel Police and paramedics were called to the home on Bridlepath Trail, just east of Mississauga Road.
