Son testifies in Ploman trial


WAUSAU (WAOW) --  Travis Ploman's son, Jordan, took the stand on Thursday for the very first time.  It was hard for anyone to hold back the tears.

Jordan was thrown from the car when the accident happened in October 2009. Police testified that they found him holding onto a orange construction barrel.

As Ploman tearfully watched his son, Jordan testified that he and his family were at a friends house that night and left sometime around midnight.

Jordan testified that the adults were, "talking and drinking" that night, "sitting around a table."

Earlier in the day, other witnesses took the stand. Including a Mosinee EMT who testified that Ploman's blood sugar level did not show signs of a diabetic attack.

But the defense argued that there was no way to tell what his blood sugar level was at the time of the accident.

Later, a second EMT was called to the stand. He testified that Ploman yelled to his son, not to say anything, when Jordan was being taken into the ambulance. But the EMT couldn't recall the exact words.

Trial will continue Friday and probably into Saturday.
