As one of the fire personnel(asst. Chief) of the FD handling this incident, I can say that this was and is a tragic event. The individual who had fallen was indeed attempting to assist the overturned vehicle. There are several other reasons this story hits our firefighter even harder but I shall not comment on them until they are all confirmed. The Leeds Hose Company No. 1 Inc. sends it's deepest sympathies and prayers to the family and friends of the "fallen". All agencies involved ( Leeds Hose Co., Greene County Sheriff's office, Greene County Paramedics, Towns of Catskill and Cairo Ambulance services and the NYS Troopers) worked their fastest, hardest and best to reverse the outcome. Good Job everyone in their efforts and God Bless

Was Kevin Ryan a firefighter and originally from Troy? I hope it is not the individual I knew as a child.
This is so very sad for all.
