MADISON, Wis. - Lake Delton police have identified the man who fell from a Mount Olympus roller coaster last week.

Lake Delton Police Lt. Daniel Hardman said Theisen was listed as being in stable condition the other day. UW Hospital officials say they do not currently have a patient by that name.

State investigators are hoping to complete their report on the incident within the next day.

Hannah Zillmer, a spokeswoman with the Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services, said the agency is waiting on details from Zamperla Manufacturing, which constructed the Opa roller coaster, before releasing its report on the matter.

DSPS records show the coaster had been inspected eight times since 2006, most recently last May. The only problems state investigators found were in September 2008, when Mt. Olympus was required to fix protruding corners, studs, bolts and screws on all of the ride's passenger-carrying devices. Other problems identified were the lack of padding on the lap bar in the middle of one of the ride's cars and another one did not have a readable warning label.

The records show the resort completed the work by the next inspection.
