Minnesota Man Killed in Fall out of Patio Door
COLLEGEVILLE (WJON News — A Cold Spring man is dead from the injuries he suffered after falling out of a sliding door Sunday.
The incident happened at about 4:45 a.m. in Collegeville Township near Big Fish Lake.
Stearns County Sheriff Don Gudmundson says they received a call that 40-year-old Chad Kraemer had fallen from a sliding glass door onto a concrete patio about 12 feet below.
Kraemer’s family told police he had gone to bed around midnight and was found on the patio just prior to the call.
Further investigation found the sliding glass door Kraemer fell from, is a “deck door” type slider, there was no deck or elevated patio associated with the door and there was no barrier preventing the use of the door.
First responders attempted to treat Kraemer for his injuries at the scene but he was later pronounced dead.
