The National FFA Convention has returned to Indianapolis, much to the city leaders’ approval. But difficult questions are being raised concerning the critically injured young man who fell at Circle Center Mall. Unfortunately, the tragic event last Thursday has turned the spotlight away from the program’s purpose.
During a break in the program’s activities, FFA Member and Texas native, Phillip Caler, fell from the mall’s third-floor, landing 41 feet below. Officials transferred Caler to Methodist Hospital where he remains in critical condition.
