Tony Grider, a fire captain in Cambellsville, KY, got too close to a power line after pouring water on himself and a group of musicians while standing on a firetruck ladder.  Grider and Simon Quinn were critically injured.


Energy from the overhead cables transferred to the arc of the bucket and shocked the pair.

They were both airlifted to University of Louisville Hospital. Quinn was released on September 15 and is recovering at home.

Campbellsville fire chief Kyle Smith confirmed the death of the veteran today – who had been with the department for 16 years. He is survived by his wife Gena and his five children…

Two other firefighters, Steve Marrs and Alex Johnson, were injured, but were released from the hospital. [su_csky_ad]
