York News-Times (NE), September 29, 2000 -- OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -- A Gretna
man found entangled in rope in the family's horse barn on Sunday has died
from his injuries.
Joseph Swett, 38, died Wednesday, officials at University Hospital said.
Authorities believe he became entangled in a rope when he fell from a
ladder. He was found there by his wife, who got him down and administered
CPR while their daughter called 911.
Sheriff's Lieutenant Randy Furby said the rope was not tied around
Swett's neck. Officials said the impact from the fall into the rope tied
to a stall may have knocked Swett unconscious.
Swett was an executive vice president of supply-chain management at
Precision Industries of Omaha.
