Hundreds support family of late toddler who died after falling from window

Posted: Updated:
WATERLOO (KWWL) - A weekend fundraiser drew in about 400 people, according to friends of the McOmber family.

Carter McOmber, 3, died after accidentally falling from a window in his Cedar Falls home in July.

Friends of the family held a fundraiser to help with medical and funeral expenses.

"We raised enough to pay for a good portion of their expenses," said Lisa Ortner, a colleague and friend who helped organize the fundraiser.

The fundraiser was held on Saturday at the UAW Hall in Waterloo.

Last week, the McOmber family issued a statement to KWWL citing their gratitude for the outpouring of community support.
