On April 10, Gibbsboro Fire Company No. 1 Inc, Firefighter William Gerace was advancing hose line during mandatory live burn training when he suffered a spiral fracture to his right fibula. On April 28, Firefighter Gerace’s spouse contacted 911 from his residence as Firefighter Gerace was showing signs of severe respiratory difficulty. Upon the arrival of emergency services, Firefighter Gerace stopped breathing and went into cardiac arrest. He was immediately transported to a local hospital with EMS performing CPR. CPR was continued at the hospital and, after approximately 20 minutes, doctors pronounced him deceased. Autopsy results showed that he suffered a pulmonary embolism, which was directly attributed to being a complication of his initial leg fracture and recovery process.
