As posted on our home page yesterday, to be clear, the incident yesterday in Pennsylvania involved a piece of apparatus being delivered-NOT an in service rig. The man was struck and killed by a New Jersey FD’s brand new aerial ladder truck in Monroe County, PA.
FF Underwood was treated for bruising and released…he caught himself as he fell, and colleagues rescued him as he dangled 20 feet above the concrete floor where Rajchel lay injured. Both work at Ladder 28 and were venting the garage’s roof when the incident occurred. Our prayers go out for his quick recovery.
