An inmate from the Webster County Jail is in a Des Moines Hospital after officials say he jumped off the roof of the jail.
It is unclear how 21year old Tanner King of Fort Dodge got on the roof of the jail, but officials say he plunged 40 feet and landed in the alley below on Wednesday night.
Officials believe King was trying to jump 22 feet to the roof of the building next door.
King’s condition has not been released. He was being held on several charges, including burglary and domestic assault.
