KETCHUM, Idaho -- An off-duty Idaho sheriff's detective suffered a broken neck and other injuries when a man fell from a roof and landed on him while he was working private security for a weekend street party in Ketchum.
Blaine County Sheriff Gene Ramsey said Sgt. Corey Weatherly underwent surgery Sunday at a Boise hospital. Ramsey says Weatherly was listed in "guarded" condition.
Ramsey said Weatherly was working private security for a street party that was part of a weekend music festival when 20-year-old Austin B. Cruz of Hailey fell from a roof and landed on him at about 1:45 a.m. Sunday.
Ramsey said the man who fell suffered a possible concussion and broken facial bones.
Both were taken to the hospital in Ketchum. Weatherly was later flown to the Boise hospital.
