I posted this on the main board, so this is a repost. The job actually occurred on Monday, but he died this morning at University Hospital, Newark.
May he rest in peace.
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.
