USFA LODD: North Carolina Firefighter On-Duty Death Notification 05.12.2016

On May 8, 2016, at approximately 2200hrs, Hugo Fire Department was dispatched on a mutual aid fire call with the North Lenoir Fire Department. Firefighter Prentice “Jay” Tyndall, 45, responded to the station and was driving an engine and enroute when the call was canceled. Near noon of the following day, Firefighter Tyndall called his wife advising her that he was having severe head pain.  Firefighter Tyndall got out of his car and went into the business he was visiting and asked them to call 911. He was transported to Wayne Memorial Hospital. While at the hospital, a CT was performed and a brain bleed was discovered. Shortly after this was found, he was flown to Vidant Medical in Greenville, NC. While at Greenville, a procedure was done to relieve pressure on his brain. He was then flown to Duke University Durham for further treatment. At Duke, surgery was performed in attempt to stop the brain bleed, but despite all efforts, Firefighter Prentice “Jay” Tyndall succumbed to his injury on May 12, 2016.
Our condolences to the Tyndall Family & Friends, Hugo Volunteer Fire & Rescue, and to all affected by Firefighter Prentice “Jay” Tyndall’s passing.
