Ada — An Ada man who was injured by flying debris at a local industrial plant in Ada Thursday morning was in critical condition Saturday, according to a spokesperson at OU Medical Center.    

According to Citizens Bank Ada Facebook page, people wishing to help the family of Martin Jussely can donate to the Martin Jussely Benefit account at any Citizens Bank location.

Emergency officials were called to Flex-N-Gate just after 8 a.m. when a machine reportedly malfunctioned and sent metal flying at Jussely. Fire Department Assistant Chief Rob Johnson said the debris   hit the Jussely in the torso/abdomen area.

Officials believe Jussely suffered internal injuries. Mercy EMS and firefighters stabilized Jussely and prepared him for flight. Firefighters and Chickasaw Lighthorse police set up a landing zone in the parking lot at the old Carl Albert Indian Hospital. Jussely was taken by Air Evac to OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City and admitted.
