Mayor Moran released a statement on Tuesday saying, "I feel terrible about the incident and was very shaken. Anytime there is an accident of this nature, it is traumatic for everyone concerned.  I have spoken with Mr. Elliott's family daily, and they are in my prayers. He was in good spirits when I spoke with him, but understandably still sore. I understand there are no broken bones or fractures, and that Mr. Elliott may be released soon."
