Caught Between Two Firetrucks
A 23-YR.-OLD PHOENIX, Arizona, firefighter with but two years on the job was killed Saturday night at an outside fire shortly after 6 pm local.
Bradley Harper, a member of Engine 21, was at the scene of a large mulch fire when he was caught and pinned between an ambulance and an engine that were repositioning (seen in the photo above). He was taken to the hospital in what the police spokesman called a gravely injured condition.
It was later reported that he passed away at 1 am local time, succumbing to his crush injuries.
