Football Player Seriously Hurt in Third Story Fall

A San Ramon sophomore is still recovering from serious injuries he suffered from a fall during football camp last week.

Ryan McNeely, who attends California High School, fell from the third-story of a dorm at St. Mary's College, according to St. Mary's spokesperson Elizabeth Smith.

Apparently, a group of boys became locked out of their second floor dorm room after curfew. 

McNeely volunteered to help his stranded friends.  He was lowering himself by way of a coaxial television cable from his room into their second-floor window. The cable snapped and McNeely fell, breaking both his legs and both his arms.

Smith said he has undergone numerous surgeries after being taken to a local hospital in Moraga. Thankfully, McNeely did not endure any internal, head or spine injuries.

Smith says they are hoping he will be released from the hospital by the end of the week.

He was attending an overnight football camp in Moraga along with six other high schools.

Hundreds of friends and supporters have created a Facebook page called "Get Better Ryan McNeely" offering their love and support to Ryan and his family.
