A roofer from High River was airlifted to a Calgary hospital after falling from a second storey home.

RCMP say the man in his 40s was putting on his gear when he slipped and fell just before 10 a.m. Sunday.

The man suffered serious but non-life threatening injuries.

Paramedics assessed his condition at the scene and decided to send him to Foothills Hospital in Calgary for treatment.

There's no word yet on whether Occupational Health and Safety will investigate.
