West Jordan police spokesman Dan Roberts said the 47-year-old man was in critical condition after being flown from the scene to Intermountain Medical Center in Murray.

The man is an employee of a property management firm who was winterizing the home’s air conditionsing system when he slipped and fell to the ground, striking a barbecue and the ground, Roberts said.
