According to the U.S. Fire Administration Firefighter Fatality report, Captain Anthony “Tony” Lynn Grider succumbed to injuries sustained 30 days earlier when he received a high-voltage electric shock during an “ALS ice water challenge” at Campbellsville University. 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.
