Helen Springthorpe was knocked unconscious in the tower of St Nicholas Church, Bathampton, near Bath, Somerset on Monday night.

Authorities said the campanologist, who had only been in the job for three months, was "thrown around the belfry" after tripping and becoming "entangled in a bell ringing rope".

I guess any job has its dangers, glad he didn't get seriously hurt.

Thank you!!!

Brings an old joke to mind about the dead ringer....

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

Geeze, that gal really gets 'tangled' up in her work. She's a 'dead-ringer' for a hard worker. ;D

Makes me think of those Terry Gilliam cartoons on Monty Python.
