anyone remember a teenage lad falling off the roof?
i worked in a nursing home on Ashville Rd and one of the 'inmates' was there because he had fallen off the depot roof and became brain-damaged. He had epilepsy too. He was foul-mouthed and randy (difficult to bath). Had a fantastic sense of humour and could be really sweet. Must have been in his early 40s when I was there and that was back in about 1995, meaning he fell off sometime in early 70s.
I too worked in a mental health unit in Ashville rd, from 1997-2003 when it closed, i think i know who you talkin about.. also a heavy smoker any nearly blind? Quite 'gropey' too?! he grabbed our nurse-in-charges thigh once when we were assisting him into bed- he wasnt very happy! Ha! Yes he was quite a character.. Believe he fell off that roof twice!
