Chief Pryor had responded to a motor vehicle crash at around 0300 hours. He returned home after the run but later in the morning told his wife he was not feeling well. She took him to the emergency room of the local hospital where he collapsed upon walking in. Sadly hospital personnel were unable to revive him. More HERE:
Our condolences to all those affected. Rest In Peace.
WATERTOWN NY FIRE CAPTAIN IN FAIR CONDITION
As previously posted, Watertwon NY Fire Captain T.G. Kolb (a long time friend of ours as well) and another Firefighter were seriously injured when a portion of a brick wall fell on them while operating at a fire in a storage building last week. Two teens face arson and other charges in the fire.
Captain Kolb remains in fair condition in Upstate Medical University, Syracuse, with numerous mid-body fractures including a fractured hip. We spoke with him yesterday and sounded in good spirits considering the ordeal he went through– has had one surgery and will have more later this week.
