LOS ANGELES — Los Angeles firefighters will gather downtown to mourn a colleague killed when he fell from an aerial ladder during training this month.

The mayor and other officials will also attend the Friday morning service for Firefighter Kelly Wong at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels.

The 29-year-old Wong fell from the ladder on June 3 and died two days later.

He had been with the Fire Department for two years.

He leaves a wife, Danielle, and an infant son, Colton.
