    Default Fdny Wreck

    FDNY is currently working an incident involving two of their apparatus. Firefighters are reported trapped and the chief officer on scene is reporting a major incident. This incident involves Tower Ladder 107 and the 236 Engine. Everyone pray for our brothers in New York as they work this tough incident.

    Hope everyone is o.k. The pics on the main page don't look good (then again, any accident involving apparatus isn't good).

    Got this from LACountyFire.com-

    Posted: 10:30 AM, October 24, 2009

    Two firetrucks racing to a call of gas leak collided in Brooklyn this morning, causing one to flip over and the other to crash into a front yard, sending 12 firefighters to the hospital – some with serious leg injuries, authorities said.

    The two trucks – from Engine 236 and Ladder 107 – were heading to the call at 762 Warwick St. in East New York when the engine truck T-boned the other at the intersection of Ashford Street and Hegeman Avenue around 9:38 a.m., officials said.

    Ladder 107, which was heading north on Ashford, flipped on to its side. Its back end landed on top of a parked minivan, crushing it, and its front end ended up wedged into a tree, witnesses said.

    Thirteen firefighters were injured and two were trapped after two fire engines collided on the way to a call in East New York, an impact that flipped one of ther big rigs on its side.
    "It went up in the air. I could see the wheels. It spun and then it slammed down on its side and then it slid and stopped wrapped in the tree," said Everett Groves, 63, a superintendent of a nearby building. "It seemed like he was trying to slam on the brakes but it was going too fast and it could not stop. To think you could turn that thing over."

    The other rig – which had been going west on Hegeman — sped into the front lawn of a nearby home.

    Several firefighters were pinned and the others quickly raced out to free their co-workers.

    "I heard one firefighter yelling, ahhhh," said witness Everton Brown. "After [the ladder truck] flipped, the one standing on the back flew off the truck and landed on his face. He walked back and sat on the other truck. Then guys from both trucks got out and started to help."

    Two firemen were cut out from the Ladder 107 truck and rushed to nearby hospitals.

    In all, 13 were hurt. The Fire Department said that 12 were hospitalized — four with serious leg injuries and eight with minor injuries. The other was treated at the scene. No civilians were hurt.

    The two firefighters with the most serious leg injuries, Lt. Kevin Washington and the truck's driver, Robert Pupa, were taken to Brookdale Hospital where they were expected to live.

    "They are probably just fractures, but they are going through tests right now," said a fire department official. "The guys are alert and talking."

    The others were taken to Jamaica Hospital and Kings County Hospital.

    Joyce Listhrop, whose minivan was hit by the Ladder truck, said she’s lucky she wasn’t sitting in the parked van, because the driver’s side was completely crushed."

    "If I was sitting there, I would die," she said. "Oh my God."

    Maybe I'm mis understanding here, but do FF in FDNY still ride outside the trucks on the back, or is this just media mistake?

    Yea... it's a mistake. They don't ride on the outside.

    Hope everyone is okay and on their way to a quick recovery.
    I am now a past chief and the views, opinions, and comments are mine and mine alone. I do not speak for any department or in any official capacity. Although, they would be smart to listen to me.

    I saw that as well and thought that can't be right. It was a pretty violent crash, I hope all recover fully.

    Most severe injury required a skin graft due to a loss of flesh. One member suffered a fractured skull, but all are expected to be OK.

    Great news to hear.

    Looking at the picture of the ladder, talk about unlucky. Think of how scarce trees are in NYC and that sliding ladder truck managed to not only slide into one, but it hit dead center of the cab! I am amazed the injuries were not worse.

    I'm thinking mistake also. Since L107 appears to be a tiller in the picture I saw, I'm thinking maybe they were referring to the tillerman?

    Glad to hear everybody will be ok.
