Collapse of roof injures 2, including a state spokesman

July 21, 1992

Two men -- including the longtime spokesman for the Maryland comptroller's office -- were injured last night when the roof of a garage they were shoring up in Linthicum Heights collapsed, trapping one of them, officials said.

Marvin A. Bond, director of public affairs for the comptroller, was able to free himself from the debris after the roof of the garage behind his home in the 200 block of W. Greenwood Road fell in about 7:13 p.m., officials said.

Mr. Bond's brother-in-law, Craig A. Tabor, 31, was trapped for 10 minutes before rescue crews freed him from the debris of the garage, said Anne Arundel Fire Capt. J. Gary Sheckells.

Mr. Tabor, whose address was not immediately available, was taken by state police MedEvac helicopter to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center.

He was being treated last night for possible internal injuries, a head injury and multiple fractures, Captain Sheckells said.

Mr. Tabor was listed in fair condition last night, a shock trauma spokesman said.

Mr. Bond was treated at the Harbor Hospital Center in South Baltimore for cuts and bruises and released, a hospital spokeswoman said.

The men were propping up the roof to renovate the garage, Captain Sheckells said.
