A Conway firefighter is in the intensive care unit at a Shreveport hospital tonight suffering from a brain injry after an underwater training exercise.
Ten-year veteran Captain Danny Collins was working in 20 feet of water in Hot Springs yesterday when he became tangled in some rope. He signalled to his partner, but when they surfaced, Collins struggled to breath.
He was air lifted to Shreveport where they have a hyperbaric chamber and specialize in these types of brain injuries.
His wife and mom were at his side Sunday night. One of his best friends, a fellow firefighter, was on his way to the hopsital as of Sunday night as well. KARK will keep you updated on his recovery.
