Los Angeles Firefighter Killed in Fall During Training Accident

A 29-year-old firefighter died on Monday, two days after he sustained injuries in a training exercise on an aerial ladder in Los Angeles.

According to the Los Angeles Fire Department, Kelly Wong was participating in the exercise on Saturday on South Main Street in downtown Los Angeles. The drills are conducted to help firefighters practice their response to high-rise blazes by pulling hose lines, climbing aerial ladders, and performing roof ventilation.

After falling from the aerial ladder, Wong was transported to the USC Medical Center in critical condition. Firefighters throughout the Los Angeles Fire Department arrived at the hospital in a show of support with many volunteering to cover Wong’s shifts.

Wong had been with the LAFD for two years at Station 92 in Rancho Park. He was preparing to transfer to Station 9 that serves downtown Los Angeles and the skid row area. He had graduated from the fire department academy at Terminal Island in San Pedro with top honors after emigrating from Hong Kong at the age of 8.
