Two employees of R&H Plumbing and Heating in Altamont were injured Tuesday when they fell from a lift while on a job site.

The employees, Jim Kline of rural Mason and Eric Grobengieser of Altamont, were working on the lift about 5pm when the incident occurred.  Both men were taken for treatment.  Kline is listed in stable condition at Carle Hospital in Urbana.  A family friend contacted us that Grobengieser is a patient at Northwestern University Hospital in Chicago.
