Anderson Tull is thankful that his son Norman Tull is alive today.
The 45-year-old mechanic was injured last Thursday when a truck he was working on at My Lord’s Hill, St Michael fell on top of him.
He has since been detained at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, where he remains in serious condition.
When Barbados TODAY visited his home at Tent Bay, St Joseph earlier Monday, his father Anderson said he was glad his son had escaped serious injury.
“I’m just glad he is alive. When I got the news it had me rocked and I am a diabetic. I didn’t take it well, but I am glad he is doing better,” he said.
Anderson said he did not know what he would have done had he lost Norman, who is the first of his two children.
According to police spokesman Acting Inspector Roland Cobbler, the injured man was working on a dump truck around 11: 15 a.m. last Thursday when the vehicle slipped from its position and pinned him underneath.
He had to be rescued by officers from the Barbados Fire Service.
