    Default Moline Firefighter dies in Chicago

    I just wanted to pass this on
    Here is what was in the Dispatch Newspaper on Monday 5-23-05:

    Chicago Police are investigating a Moline firefighters death in that city Sunday afternoon. Bradley Padakis, 32, was staying at a hotel with friends when he collapsed, according to Anthony Brucci, an investigator with the Cook County medical examiner's office.
    Mr. Padakis was taken from the hotel to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago, where he died at 1:29pm., Mr. Brucci said. An autopsy is scheduled today, he said.
    Mr. Padakis had been a firefighter for seven years, a fire department official said Sunday night.

    I will pass on more as I find it out.
    My prayers and thoughts go out to Mr. Padakis' family and the Moline Fire Department.

    The last that I heard was that everything was negative. I had heard that he had been sick for a few days prior. If i hear anything I will be sure to pass it on.
