A University of Montana employee who fell through a glass skylight continues to recover.

61-year-old Mike Burke remained hospitalized Wednesday, after he fell through a skylight and landed on a boiler while working on the roof of the Heating Plant Tuesday, morning. His condition was upgraded from serious to fair.
