Julian Becerra, the Fountain, CO, police officer who fell 40 feet from a bridge in pursuit of a carjacking suspect last week, is on life support, according to a news release Friday from the police department.
“Officer Becerra is currently on life support and surrounded by his family and friends,” Fountain police spokesperson Lisa Schneider said in the news release. “We ask that everyone respect the privacy of Officer Becerra, his family, and his Fountain Police Department family.”
Becerra’s stable but critical condition has not changed since the incident last Thursday, Schneider said.
The direct cause of the fall is still under investigation by the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office. Becerra’s GoFundMe has raised over $45,000 in the past week and remains open for donations, the Gazette reports.
