    Thumbs down Newark, NJ LODD 7-26-07

    The fire actually occurred on Monday, but he died this morning at University Hospital, Newark. I believe he was assigned to L9, but the news didn't advise. George Wendt has more info, I'm sure. George, you on the air?



    Newark-WABC, July 26, 2007) - Cornelius Knowlton was fighting a fire on Monday when he complained of back and neck pain. Those pains were really symptoms of a heart attack, a heart attack that he would not recover from.

    New Jersey reporter Toni Yates is live in Newark with the story.
    We spoke to a Newark city official but they are not releasing much information on the firefighter. However, we do know that Cornelius Knowlton is 37-years-old, but the exact cause of his death has not been determined.

    Outside the Newark station where he works, they've placed a bunting to honor him.

    While responding to a fire on Monday, Eyewitness News is told he complained of having pain in his neck and back. He was taken to University Hospital where doctors said he suffered a heart attack. Knowlton died this morning.

    He's been with the department for 14 years. He leaves behind a wife and three kids.

    The city and fire department will continue to gather more information to release later on. Stay with Eyewitness News and 7online.com for the latest on this story.

    This is seeming like almost a daily event lately, with Charleston, NY, Contra Costa, a pilot in California, the EMTs and more .... *sigh* Sad times.

    My condolences to the Newark Fire Department and the Knowlton family for their sad loss.

    Sleep with angels, Cornelius

    I'm here, but I'm not here. I am in the Outer Banks and I have no info. If it actually was 9 Truck, that is a busy unit in the eye of the storm.

    I generally don't post any inside info I get in situations like this, though.

    George, I would never expect you to betray confidences. I just thought you might have info on the company he worked in. On the news they showed E18, but I believe the station facade said Truck 9 as well. I don't know who E18's sister truck is.

    May he rest in peace.
