IN. LODD Wife Speaks, FF Hit By Hot Oil, Illinois Updates (The Secret List)

     

Wednesday, November 14, 2012

Janet Haudenschild, the wife of the Washington Township (IN) Firefighter who was killed in the Line of Duty Sunday when he was ejected when his tanker rolled over while responding to brush fire, spoke in an interview today. At about 2040 hours, he was alone responding when he tried to make a turn and the truck rolled several times and hit three utility poles. The truck came to rest on its side, about 100 yards south of the intersection.  

He leaves behind his wife and  two children – a 1-year-old daughter Kyra and 3-year-old son, Mark Haudenschild III.

 

HERE IS THE VIDEO OF THE ENTIRE INTERVIEW:

WOMAN THROWS HOT OIL ON FIREFIGHTER - WHO WAS CHECKING ON HER WELL BEING

A Wayland (MA) Firefighter is in fair condition with 2nd degree burns to his face after an elderly woman threw a frying pan full of hot oil into his face. Rita Warren, 72, was arrested at 12:20 p.m. after she threw the oil into Firefighter Dean Casali's face yesterday. Casali was among those going to Warren's apartment to check on her well-being. Casali was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital with burns to his face and eyes, where he remained as of last night.
Prosecutor Jessica Hogan told Judge Robert Greco that firefighters and police officers went to Warren's apartment to check on her.
"She threw a pot of hot oil at the firefighters' face," Hogan said. The reason is not known.
Police arrested Warren and charged her with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and assault and battery on a public employee. The courts released Warren without bail, but ordered her to be taken to a hospital for a three-day mental evaluation and is due back in court on Nov. 20. We wish FF Casali a rapid recovery.
