Firefighter/EMT Andrew “Drew” Price, 39, sustained serious injuries after a “bad fall” while fighting the fire at a four-story mixed occupancy building in the 2400 block of North Lincoln Avenue around 6 a.m., fire commissioner Annette Nance-Holt said during a press conference.
A mayday was called after Price fell through a light shaft and became trapped behind a wall, according to Nance-Holt. Firefighters had to force a hole through a wall in order to extricate him.
On behalf of the Fire Commisioner, it is my sad duty to report the passing of our member injured this morning at 2430 Lincoln. Commissioner Nance-Holt will address media at Illinois Masonic. About 945, subject to change.
