FireNews has information
on Trap Fire Department Firefighter Timothy King who was critically injured at a motor-vehicle accident on Monday. While donning turnout gear at the scene, he was struck by a car that slid on ice. He was trapped between two vehicles, and his legs were both amputated below the knee. He was air-lifted to Pitt Memorial, and has undergone two surgeries. The 27 year-old firefighter has been a member of Trap Fire Department for about two years. WITN also is covering the story
That is a sad story. I have been praying for him. I remember a Medic here in Mecklenburg county that had the same thing. He was pinned between the ambulance and a car. Drivers and ice can become a bad combination for us emergency personnel.
