A soon-to-be father is still in a coma following a 40-foot fall last week near Grandad Bluff. Eighteen-year-old Branden Hellrud suffered a punctured lung, four broken vertebrae in his neck, seven broken ribs, two skull fractures, and other injuries. W-K-B-T/T-V reports he was diagnosed with pneumonia Tuesday but his temperature is coming down and a draining tube has been removed from his skull. The doctors are said to be removing him from sedation as they plan to bring him out of the medically-induced coma.
