Ohio Man Uses Bucket Truck so He Can See Mom on 3rd floor of ALF


For years, Charley Adams has been visiting his 80-year-old mother Julie twice a week. Those visits were interrupted because of the situation we’re dealing with.

His in-person visits at a distance were also a challenge because Julie lives on the third floor of an assisted living complex. There was just too much of a risk of exposing her and her neighbors to illness, so he had to stay away – until now.

Charley happens to own a tree care service company, Adams Tree Preservation in Youngstown which includes trucks with tall bucket lifts. He was able to surprise his mom by showing up at her building – and then using the bucket lift to raise himself up to the third floor. He then called her and told her to look outside her window.

Charley’s creativity, allowed him to cheer his mom up with a 10-minute “visit,” while keeping everyone as safe as possible.
