New York Fire Commissioner Nicholas Scoppetta says that the door latch blamed after a firefighter's near fatal fall from an FDNY truck Friday night was not faulty.
Firefighter Joseph Moore fractured his skull after falling from a truck on its way to a call.
The truck, from Ladder Company 13, was making a left turn on to Lexington Avenue between 84th and 85th streets when Moore fell out.
Commissioner Scoppetta says that it's still unclear why Moore fell out.
"Apparently preliminary indications are that there was no faulty latch on the door, and we are now interviewing everybody who was involved, who was working on that rig that night," said Scoppetta.
Moore is listed in critical but stable condition at New York Hospital/Cornell Medical Center.
The truck has been taken out of service during the investigation.
