A Chicago firefighter has died after he was found unresponsive at his South Side firehouse Saturday morning.
51-year-old veteran Chicago firefighter Lt. Patrick Hannon was given Advanced Life Support care and was taken to Mercy Hospital where he died, according to Fire Media Affairs Dir. Larry Langford.
He was on-duty in his firehouse quarters. Hannon joined the Chicago Fire Dept. in December 1988 and turned 51 last month. He is married and has two children, Langford said. His wife is a firefighter paramedic within the department.
"Fire Commission Robert Hoff and the command staff, as well as rank and file of the Chicago Fire Dept. express our sorrow at this loss of one of our own," Langford said.
