Both men were on the fire truck's ladder when it got too close to a power line after dumping water on Campbellsville University's marching band on Thursday in the charity stunt to raise awareness for the disease ALS.

Campbellsville Fire Chief Kyle Smith told WDRB-TV on Friday that Grider suffered burns on 55 percent of his body and is sedated.

Two other firefighters were hurt, but they are out of the hospital.
