A Grand Island police officer remains in a Lincoln hospital after being injured in a weekend parachute accident while training with the Nebraska Army National Guard.
Authorities say 25-year-old Brian Houser was injured Saturday during a training exercise with his unit near Beatrice.
Houser's father, Craig Houser, says they were jumping from Chinook helicopters and he had a "rough landing." He landed hard on his feet and was knocked onto his back. He suffered a broken vertebrae.
Brian Houser was taken to Bryan Health in Lincoln, where he was listed in fair condition on Monday.
He was hired by the city three months ago and was undergoing training at the Nebraska Law Enforcement Training Academy.
