WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A fund for the family of a former Wichita police officer who died in a fall in Missouri has reached more than $13,500.
Shane Little and another man were climbing a trail at Table Rock Lake near Branson, Missouri, on Friday when he fell to the base of the cliff.
Little had been a member of Wichita’s North Patrol for several years before he contracted bacterial meningitis in 2011 and was left blind and unable to work.
Little is survived by his wife, Amanda, who is a Wichita police officer, and four children under age 8.
The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/1k2W8t1 ) that members of the Fraternal Order of Police and Wives Backing the Badge established a fund to help Little’s family via the online fundraising site GiveForward.com.
