PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) – A man was seriously injured Sunday evening after officials say he fell from the wing of an airplane that had been converted into a residence in Oregon. The man was taking a tour of the Boeing 727, located in the city of Hillsboro, just west of Portland, when he slipped and fell 30 feet to the ground, according to Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue. Officials said wet conditions may have contributed to the incident. Life Flight was called to the scene, but officials said the man was ultimately taken by ambulance to a trauma hospital.
