As noted earlier here on the site, a crew worker died last night after he fell nearly 20 feet to the ground when scaffolding collapsed as he worked to tear down TNA’s metal backdrop following their PPV. The incident took place shortly after the PPV ended last night. The man was quickly rushed to the hospital but his injuries were too severe. He worked for Christie Lites of Orlando, Florida and was a sub-contractor for TNA. Another worker lost his thumb in the scaffold collapse. This man works for Crew One Productions.
