LEBANON, OH (FOX19) - A Warren County Sheriff's deputy was taken to the hospital Wednesday night after falling off of a roof during an investigation.
Deputy Sheriff Anthony Baldino, 36, was sent to the old South Lebanon Elementary School on East Broadway at around 10:30 p.m. for a report of two suspicious males. The abandoned school had recently been the target of vandals.
While trying to gain access to the roof, Baldino slipped and fell off a window ledge, approximately seven feet to the ground, hitting his head.
The fall caused Baldino to briefly lose consciousness and suffer a severe laceration to his forehead.
He was taken to Bethesda North Hospital, where he was admitted overnight for observation. He is expected to be released on Thursday.
