Captain Tony Grider, a firefighter from central Kentucky, has died from injuries he sustained while taking part in an ALS ice bucket challenge a month ago. Grider was helping the marching band from Campbellsville University take part in the challenge by using a firetruck to dump freezing water on them.
He was climbing the ladder when he got too close to nearby power lines, and was shocked, along with colleague Simon Quinn. Both men were critically injured, but Quinn recovered, and was released from hospital 5 days ago. Tragically, Grider succumbed to his injuries, at the age of 41.
