Man taken to hospital after injuring hand at Wellington-area business

WELLINGTON TWP. — A man was taken to the hospital from Cleveland City Forge this morning after cutting his hand with a lathe, according to the Wellington Fire Department.

The Fire Department was called just after 8 a.m. in to set up a LifeFlight landing zone, according to Assistant Chief Bill Brown, but MetroHealth Medical Center’s helicopter was unable to fly due to the weather, he said. He said the man was taken to Mercy Allen Hospital in Oberlin.

Cleveland City Forge is located at 46950 state Route 18 and, according to its website is “a major supplier in the industrial fastener industry.”

Brown did not know the man’s name or condition and could not confirm he was an employee of the company.

Calls to the Southern Lorain County Ambulance District were not answered, and a voice mail was left for an official at Cleveland City Forge.
