An Omaha firefighter candidate injured after plummeting 35 feet to the ground during a training exercise was identified Monday as Ron-Eric Estes, 28.
Estes suffered internal and external injuries. He was in stable condition Monday at the Nebraska Medical Center.
Estes was performing a search-and-rescue drill to locate a child dummy Friday when he fell out of a third-story window at the Rainwood Training Center.
He is a first-year probationary firefighter candidate, hired on July 23, 2012. The exercise was part of a 16-week training period.|
