Kentucky Firefighters Injured Using Ladder Truck While Helping Band With Ice Bucket Challenge
The president of a college in central Kentucky says two firefighters were injured while using their fire truck ladder to help the school's marching band take part in an ice bucket challenge.
Campbellsville University President Michael Carter tells WHAS-TV that the school asked the local fire department to help spray its marching band with cold water. Andrew Melnykovich, a spokesman for the Public Service Commission, says the fire truck's ladder either touched a power line or came too close to it. He says the ladder didn't have to strike the line to cause a reaction.
Carter says at least two, and perhaps three, firefighters were injured Thursday after the challenge to raise awareness for ALS. No students were hurt.
