'Ladder Falling' Season
By: Erica Byfield
PADUCAH, KY -- Believe it or not, were in the middle of ladder falling season. During the holiday, every hour at least two or three Americans find themselves emergency rooms with ladder related injuries.
"To your right, oh, a little to the left," called Ginny Hutson to her husband, "You know you've done it before, it can be done." But in the past few years Ginny made it a point to keep her husband Chris on the ground.
Chris used climb up to the second story of their Paducah home using an extended ladder. "It's frustrating right now, but I would rather do this than get up on an extension ladder," said Chris.
Now he keeps both feet on the ground, thanks to his wife's crafty invention. Ginny said she bought the pole from a local store, "I think it was really to put up Christmas lights." In this case it hangs festive wreaths with red ribbons.
Meanwhile, back at the Hutson's, dads still working hard. "Sometimes it works quickly and other times it's stubborn like this," said Chris.
