WCSO Veteran Injured at Military Jet Crash Site

While the two Sheppard pilots both received minor injuries, a Wichita County Sheriff's lieutenant wasn't so fortunate while trying to help one of the pilots.

Lt. George Robinson was injured this morning while trying to get to one of the pilots.

According to Sheriff David Duke, Robinson started climbing a 10 to 12 foot fence to get to a pilot who was on the other side screaming for help but then the 49 year old became the one who needed assistance.

"When he got to the top of it the fence broke and gave away at the wire and he fell to the other side and got a severe fractured leg," says Wichita County Sheriff David Duke.

Lt. Robinson, who has been with the sheriff's office for 16 years, underwent surgery this morning at united regional to repair the break.

He's expected to be off the job for at least six weeks recovering.
