The Secret List
 

The Secret List is an independent newsletter produced since 1998 by Chief Billy Goldfeder in an effort to bring forward the issues involving injury and death to us...often issues that are ignored, quickly forgotten or just not talked about.

TSL is e-mailed at no charge and produced as time allows. With the attitude that in order for us to survive the dangers of the job, they must learn how we have had "Close Calls" and even been injured or killed, TSL brings forward issues in an effort to enforce that philosophy-and get us to refocus on "what's important."

2 FIREFIGHTERS LODD-MIDDLE EAST, MEDAVAC LODD - FALL FROM COPTER (The Secret List)

Tuesday, April 28, 2015   2 BEIRUT (LEBANON, MIDDLE EAST) FIREFIGHTERS LODD-FLASHOVERThe Secret List www.FireFighterCloseCalls.com

We regret to pass on to you that two young Firefighters - a newlywed whose wife had just announced her pregnancy, and another who was preparing for his wedding - were discovered dead this morning after operating at a huge commercial fire overnight in Beirut's Mar Elias district.

The fallen Firefighters are Mohammad al-Mawla, 25, who was married three months ago, and Adel Saadeh, 28, who was preparing for his wedding.

Yesterday was Mawla’s wife told him that they were going to have a baby.

Firefighters from the Beirut Fire Department responded more than three hours after Civil Defense teams failed to contain the fire that broke out around 8:30 p.m. Monday at a printing press in the basement of the Al-Turk building.

Early reports are that FF Mawla was caught in a flashover and was unable to escape. When FF Saadeh attempted to rescue Mawla, he also died from asphyxiation due to the flashover conditions. Our condolences to all those affected. RIP.

TX MEDAVAC LODD - FALL FROM COPTER

A nurse attempting a rescue from a STARFlight medical helicopter fell to her death over Austin’s Barton Creek Greenbelt late Monday.  Kristin McLain, a 46-year-old registered nurse who had worked on the STARFlight team for seven years, fell from the helicopter’s hoist during the rescue attempt, officials said.

At about 9:50 p.m., the STARFlight EC-145 was on a search-and-rescue mission for a woman who was injured when she fell in the Barton Creek Greenbelt near the 2600 block of Barton Hills Drive. The greenbelt, which runs southwest from Zilker Park, is popular for hiking, mountain biking and rock climbing. Medical emergencies related to those activities are not uncommon there.

The helicopter crew had located the injured woman and was helping to lift her to safety with the helicopter’s hoist when McLain fell, said STARFlight program director Casey Ping in a news briefing early Tuesday morning.




Take Care. Be Careful. Pass It On.
