Wayne Thompson recovering from fall over the weekend

WILLMAR -- Kandiyohi County Administrator Wayne Thompson is recovering from a concussion following an accident over the weekend at his home on Norway Lake.

In casual conversation Tuesday with County Commissioners, Thompson said he fell from a slippery dock Friday evening and struck his head on rocks in a shallow part of the lake. He was home alone at the time and a neighbor called rescue personnel.

Thompson was taken to Rice Memorial Hospital by the Sunburg ambulance.

He praised the local rescue squad and ambulance personnel for their assistance.

He said the accident could have been much more serious than it was.
