USFA LODD – Kentucky Fire Captain Fatalities Notification 09.20.2014

Captain Anthony “Tony” Lynn Grider, 41, on September 20, 2014 , succumbed to injuries sustained 30 days earlier when he received a high-voltage electric shock during an "ALS ice water challenge" at Campbellsville University. Captain Grider and a second firefighter, who has since been released from the hospital and is recovering from his injuries, were both injured in the bucket of an aerial ladder truck when, according to reports, energy from a nearby power line arced to the bucket. 

Our condolences to the Grider Family & Friends, the Campbellsville Fire-Rescue Department, and to all affected by Firefighter John Derek Gupton's passing. 

To date, 63 firefighter fatalities have been reported to USFA in 2014. Year-to-date monthly and annual USFA firefighter fatality reports are posted online at U.S. Fire Administration (USFA) Fatality Notices page.
