Man rescued after falling through roof

NEW CASTLE — City police and firefighters rescued a man who had fallen through the roof of the former Shenango China facility.

Anthony Leo Sipe, 22, of 219 N. Beaver St. was found inside the building about 8:30 p.m. Sunday. Firefighters said he was stuck on an old plate rack.

New Castle police said a passer-by walking along the railroad tracks had heard someone screaming for help inside the building at 301 Glass St.

Police found Sipe, who they said appeared to be stuck on a wooden shelf. Police observed severe facial swelling and bruising, they said, as well as a large quantity of blood from what appeared to be a gash in the back of Sipe’s head.

He told police he had fallen.

Officers notified the New Castle Fire Department and Noga Ambulance, who removed Sipe. He was taken to Jameson Hospital then transferred to St. Elizabeth Health Center in Youngstown.

Police said Sipe will be cited with criminal and defiant trespassing.

Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 fell from the sky in Donetsk, Ukraine, on Thursday, killing all 298 people aboard. Many are speculating that Russian rebels (supported by Vladimir Putin) are responsible for downing the aircraft. What do you think?

Yes. All evidence points that way.
No. Everyone is so quick to point fingers, but there's not enough evidence to support claims of Russian guilt.
I'm not sure. I'll just wait until the investigation is over to make up my mind.
What is up with these Malaysian Airlines planes? I know one airline I won't be flying any time soon...
