Yuma, Arizona—An employee of the City of Yuma Utilities Department was seriously injured in a strange accident on Tuesday while repairing a water leak. William Mason, age 40, is hospitalized in intensive care with a broken back, broken leg and injured arm after a 16 foot tall saguaro cactus fell on him. In addition to these injuries, well more than one hundred cactus needles have been removed from Mr. Mason’s body.

No one presently knows what caused the cactus to fall. An adult saguaro can weigh more than 4,000 pounds.

We wish Mr. Mason a complete and speedy recovery.
