That young Macon County Firefighter tragically died in the Line of Duty earlier today after suffering a traumatic brain injury in that accident at a fire scene Saturday afternoon.
Firefighter Darrell Plank, 29, was hit in the head by a metal hose coupling as a fire hose snagged on the truck at the scene of a fire off Ga. 128 near Taylor County. He was reportedly gearing up at the time that other crews were laying out.
The 10-year veteran Firefighters skull was seriously fractured and he then suffered a stroke on the left side of his brain. He leaves behind his wife, 5 young children and numerous family and friends. Our condolences to all those affected. Rest In Peace.
