Bourne firefighters were called to the Monument Beach Sportsman’s Club to help an elderly man who fell down a flight of stairs.

Bourne Deputy Fire Chief Paul C. Weeks said the 88 year old fell around 2:38 PM Friday, August 9.

The Monument Beach Sportsmen’s Club is located off MacArthur Boulevard, near the Bourne town landfill.

A MedFlight was first called to take the victim to an area trauma center, Dep. Chief Weeks said. He said the helicopter was ultimately not used, and the victim was instead taken to Tobey Hospital in Wareham for treatment.
