GERMANTOWN - A 55 year old man is hospitalized after what appears to be a freak accident at his home in Germantown. 

Germantown police Cpt Evans tells WTMJ the man fell two stories at his barn, hitting a pole on his way down.

It happened at 11:54am Saturday at the man's farm located at W204N12079 Goldendale Rd. 

The victim was conscious when paramedics arrived and has since been transported via Flight For Life, to Froedtert Memorial Hospital in Milwaukee.

Kevin Gahan is a neighbor.

He says Stout was recovering from a recent accident.

“I think it's really unfortunate,” sympathizes Gahan. “They're a really nice couple and he seems like just a genuinely nice man.”

Germantown police say the fall looks like an accident and nothing seems suspicious at this time.
