Man airlifted after mobile home collapses on him

A mobile home collapsed on a man on Ridgewood Drive in Southern Pines.

Authorities were dispatched just before noon Tuesday to a traumatic injury. When they arrived on the scene, they found the mobile home had fallen on the man when a jack fell. 

The man works for Hudson Homes in Aberdeen. The company was in the stages of breaking down the mobile home to move. 

“He saved my life,” said a worker. “He told me to come out in case a jack fell. By the time I got out, a jack fell, and the home collapsed on him.”

Another employee said, “We heard it, and there was nothing we could do.” 

A landing zone was set up at the ballfield at Memorial Park in Southern Pines. The man was airlifted by MedCenter Air to a local trauma center.  

“The patient was alert. His condition is unknown but not believed to be life-threatening,” said Southern Pines Fire Chief Mike Cameron.

Responding to the scene were Southern Pines Fire and Rescue, Moore County EMS, and Southern Pines Police Department.
