KWCH — (EL DORADO, Kan.) — Butler County dispatchers say a correctional officer fell from a tower at the El Dorado Correctional Facility Friday morning.
It happened at around 11:20 a.m.
The correctional officer was taken to a Wichita hospital in good condition. Prison officials say he was responsive.
The prison sent an emergency response team to check on him, when he didn't respond to calls. That team found him on a walkway, about halfway up the tower. Investigators believe he fell from the top walkway through an entry hatch.
Tonight he's in good condition, and will be going home soon.
