Many firefighters of the FDNY are hurting as one of their own Michael Fahy was killed from a gas leak at an illegal marijuana grow house. Michael was a 17 year veteran and was well respected around the department. During the event, Michael’s family and Mayor De Blasio revealed a street sign in honor of Michael and for the service he provided for so long. The two men that were in the marijuana growth house, Julio Salcedo and Garivaldi Castillo pleaded guilty to manslaughter.
“… Many have noted that had he stayed with us, had we have the blessings of his presence, there’s a very good chance he would’ve been sitting in one of these chairs not so long from now.” One of the many powerful statements made from de Blasio at the ceremony.
