    Default San Fran FF Mindy Ohler passes....

    I received this via e-mail:

    It is with a heavy heart that I wish to report the passing of female firefighter, Mindy Ohler. She passed away early this morning (01/13) at San Francisco General Hospital.

    Mindy was a 13-year veteran firefighter, and a RNA. FF Mindy Ohler is the first female firefighter in San Francisco to die in the line of duty.

    Services will be held in San Francisco on Thursday, January 16, 2003. Please contact UFSW Steering Committee Member, Katherine Alba-Swanson, via email (kalba@hotmail.com) or cell phone (415-609-1499) for further details on honoring Mindy and services for her line-of-duty death.

    San Francisco firefighter dies after falling off engine

    (San Francisco-AP) -- A San Francisco firefighter injured in a
    fall from a fire engine last week has died.
    A fire department spokesman says Melinda Ohler died yesterday at
    San Francisco General Hospital. Ohler had worked on the force for
    13 years.
    Department spokesman Barry Wong says Ohler died naturally and
    not because she was taken off life support.
    Last Wednesday's accident happened when the fire truck carrying
    Ohler was on its way to a possible fire in the new people-mover
    transit system at San Francisco International Airport.
    Ohler fell from the rear-facing seat on the back of the engine
    just minutes after leaving the station. Her seat belt was found
    The department says it's not clear what happened, and the
    accident is being investigated.
