Texas Fire Chief in Coma Succumbs to Injuries

The fire chief of the Steele Creek Acres Volunteer Fire Department died on Sept. 26; close to two weeks after an incident at a fire station left him in a coma.

Fire Chief Ed Mosley, 66, was on the ground while other firefighters were working on the roof. His heel got caught in sheet metal, and he fell backward, striking his head on the concrete, according to the USFA.

Mosley suffered a severe head injury.

He was transported to the hospital and doctors were forced to remove part of his brain after he was diagnosed with a clot the size of a hand that had to be removed.

Family members held a prayer vigil for Mosley last Thursday night in Morgan.

Funeral arrangements are pending.
