Son of Kentucky lawmaker hospitalized after fall

September 5, 2018

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — A Kentucky lawmaker’s son is in a medically induced coma following a fall from an apartment balcony last week near the University of Kentucky campus.

House Democratic Leader Rocky Adkins said Corbin Harris, son of state Rep. Chris Harris, is still in the hospital. Adkins led the Legislative Research Commission in a moment of silence during its Wednesday meeting in Harris’ honor.

WKYT-TV reports Lexington police have ruled out any criminal activity in connection with the fall.

Chris Harris is a Democrat who represents District 93 in the Kentucky House of Representatives, which includes Martin County and a portion of Pike County. Harris is running for re-election in November against Republican challenger Norma Kirk McCormick.
