2 men hurt when garage roof collapses

July 21, 1992

Two men were injured last night when a garage roof they were shoring in Linthicum Heights collapsed, officials said.

Marvin A. Bond, 42, director of public affairs for the state comptroller, was able to free himself from the debris after the garage roof 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, said JTC Anne Arundel Fire Capt. J. Gary Sheckells. Mr. Tabor was taken by state police MedEvac helicopter to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he was in fair condition after treatment for possible internal injuries, a head injury and multiple fractures, a spokesman said.

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

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