PARIS – A manager at the New England Public Warehouse Logistics headquarters in Paris was injured Tuesday after an accident inside the facility.

“He somehow slipped and fell on this steel staircase,” said Dan Gilman, president of the company. “No one saw it happen.”

Gilman declined to give the manager’s name, but said he has worked at the company for approximately three years.

Paris police also declined to release the manager’s name, saying the call was considered a medical assist.

Gilman said another employee came across the manager after going to meet him on the roof. Gilman said a new roof is being installed over about 50,000 square feet of the building.

In addition to Paris police, the Fire Department, Oxford County Sheriff’s Office, and PACE Ambulance responded to the scene. The manager was taken to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston by a LifeFlight helicopter, which landed on a recreation field at the Oxford Hills Middle School.

Gilman said the manager suffered a cut on his forehead, but was not seriously injured. He said the hospital is keeping him overnight for observation.
