32-year-old Darin Jordan fell eight feet Wednesday afternoon onto a large pile of bricks and brick fragments. Initially Jordan was taken to Good Samaritan Hospital for treatment, but this morning was transported to Grant Medical Trauma Center in Columbus. According to family members, Darin shattered his left leg and arm. After the first surgery in which doctors inserted a metal rod into his leg, doctors opted to transport him to Columbus for his second operation. Wednesday afternoon Darin had been helping his cousin renovate the old Thompson Radio Supply Building into an art gallery. Darin's brother witnessed the fall and stayed with him until help arrived. Relatives say Darin, who lives in Zanesville, is a hard and devoted worker. They also say that Darin may have to undergo further surgeries, but that that can only be determined after he recovers from the first two operations.
