Building inspector slips, breaks leg

May 11, 1994

The hazards of the job caught up with the Sykesville building inspector Friday.

Bill Oler, hired on a two-year contract in January, fell down a hill at the Shannon Run tot lot on Norris Avenue. He broke his leg in two places.

"It was a very bad and painful break," said Town Manager James L. Schumacher. "We had to get the ambulance."

Mr. Oler, who has earned about 500 hours in safety training, added safety inspection to his duties about six weeks ago.

After a brief hospital stay, Mr. Oler was recuperating at his Hampstead residence, Mr. Schumacher said. He was unsure when Mr. Oler would be able to resume his duties.
