SHARE OREM WOMAN DIES AFTER FALL OFF LADDER

An Orem woman died Friday from injuries she sustained after falling from a ladder Thursday afternoon.

Killed was:Mary Ada Grossen, 62.

Grossen was descending from a ladder at her home, 701 W. 650 South, when she apparently fell and struck her head on concrete, Orem Police spokesman Gerald Nielsen said.

Neighbors who had witnessed Grossen climbing the ladder, to evidently check on her air conditioner, contacted Orem Police dispatchers. Officers and Orem fire crews responded minutes after.

After paramedics resuscitated the woman, she was taken to Utah Valley Regional Medical Center for treatment of a deep head injury. However, she died a day later, a hospital spokesman said.
