oh geez, I can't imagine that second of helplessness as it sinks in that you're going to hit the ground...  sucks man.  

how many years was the recovery?  Are you back to 'normal' again, or will the body never be the same?

You got it. when that ladder kicked out and i was hanging in the air for a split second, it was the worst feeling of my life. it's not like i slid down a roof and knew it was coming and could hang on the gutter, and try and land right. it was just "ZIP" and i was midair, instantly. i reached out and tore the gutter right off the house, sliced the shit out of my fingers

and i got lucky as fuck, all things considered. to my left was all of the service to the house, meters, pipes and whatnot, and to my right..like two feet, was a metal fence. I landed right between the two of them with likes inches to spare.I got hurt pretty good, but  i could have got fucking horribly mangled.

i recovered quick, did P/T for six months.. never even went for shoulder surgery. my ortho said that shoulder surgery was no guarantee, it's the hardest joint in the body to successfully repair. I had no pain so i passed on it, and i am fine....

the only thing is if i lean on my right elbow for too long, like laying down with your arm holding you up...my shoulder hurts like a fuck after a few minutes. and my injuries are covered for life so if it ever got bad i can have it taken care of

This thread was originally posted as a notice of his fall and that he was in the hospital in serious condition.  He (apparently) died later and obviously the OP didn't edit his post accordingly.

WIKI doesn't have the news yet

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mike_Katz

Michael Katz (born November 14, 1944) is a former American IFBB professional bodybuilder and former professional football player with the New York Jets, most famous for his appearance with Arnold Schwarzenegger in the 1977 bodybuilding documentary film Pumping Iron.
 
Katz attended Southern Connecticut State College, graduating in 1966. He worked as a Jr. High School gym teacher while training as an amateur bodybuilder. Katz cited bullying in his youth for being Jewish and wearing glasses as inspiration for weight training. He was known for his role as the underdog in the 1975 Mr. Universe competition, where, he refused to give up on himself despite placing 4th place in the Tall man division. Katz later went professional and qualified for the 1976 Mr. Olympia, placing 2nd in the heavyweight division in what was considered his peak form (Katz had greatly improved his proportions, considered his main flaw as a competitor).
 
Mike Katz was also a pro football player with the New York Jets before ending his NFL career with a leg injury in 1968.
 
Katz appeared in the documentary Challenging Impossibility (film), commenting on the weightlifting odyssey of spiritual teacher and peace advocate Sri Chinmoy. The film was an Official Selection of the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival.
