One of Four Firefighters Injured during ALS Challenge dies

Tony Grider, one of four firefighters injured during an ALS ice bucket challenge in Campbellsville Kentucky this summer has died.

The four firefighters were helping the Campbellsville University marching band that had accepted the ice bucket challenge by hosing them down with a fire hose from a fire bucket when the bucket got too close to the power lines. The bucket never touched the power lines but the electricity arced injuring the firefighters; two of them seriously.

Tony Grider, 41 has been battling for his life since August. He lost that battle a couple of weeks ago.

The other firefighter who was seriously injured was Simon Quinn. Simon Quinn was recently released from the hospital.
