A 39-year-old Texas man died this weekend while hanging Christmas lights.
Felipe Gallegos was working on a client’s house with his wife, Alisha Flick and their 17-year-old son Kaymin Flick when tragedy struck. Alisha and Kaymin were in the front yard of the home when they heard a noise.
“I got out and I went over there, and he was laying on the concrete,” Alisha told WFAA. “He was saying ‘Help me, help me,’ and so I called 911.”
Paramedics arrived and rushed Felipe to the hospital.
Felipe had a skull fracture, bleeding in his brain, and a chest fracture.
“My son kept saying, ‘Dad if it hurts just squeeze my hand.’ And he squeezed my son’s hand, and then all of a sudden he quit breathing.”
