Fallen blind man sues after workmen removed his balcony

TO Blindheim, Germany, where wheelchair-bound Klaus Ohlmeier is addressing the court:

“I heard a noise, and then I can’t remember anything. I’m glad it didn’t come out any worse.”

Mr Ohlmeier is 64-years-old and blind. He lives in a home that was being  renovated. His balcony had been removed… His fall led to many broken ribs and internal bleeding. Says site manager Patrick B: “There was a sign.” For the, erm, blind people to read.

Patrick B. is now being sued for injury resulting from negligence.

The case continues…
