The Secret List www.FireFighterCloseCalls.com
We regret to pass on to you that 66 year old Somerset Township (south of Jackson, MI) Fire Captain Fred A. Newton, Sr. died yesterday. While preparing to leave his fire station upon completion of his shift which included responses to three emergency incidents, Captain Newton went out to the station parking lot to start and warm his car. At 0815hrs, as other members of the fire department arrived at the station, they noticed Captain Newton was in his car and had perhaps fallen asleep while the vehicle was still running. When a Firefighter went outside and knocked on a window of the vehicle there was no response. He then opened the door and noticed Captain Newton was not breathing. The EMS crew at the station immediately began to render assistance, including ALS procedures, and transported Captain Newton to the hospital where he was pronounced deceased. Our condolences to all those affected. RIP.
Take Care. Be Careful. #passiton
