CBS 2 - September 28, 2018

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Hundreds gathered this afternoon to honor the life and sacrifice of a fallen FDNY firefighter.

The sounds of bag pipes echoed through the streets in the Bronx as loved ones, firefighters and community members remembered Deputy Chief Michael Fahy.

The 17-year veteran lost his life two years ago today while responding to reports of a gas leak at an illegal marijuana grow house.

“In his final moments he was doing what he loved,” said FDNY Commissioner Daniel Nigro. “His decisions made sure no one else was seriously hurt. He put himself in harms’ way so that others would be protected and saved”

Fahy, 44, left behind a wife, two sons and one daughter.
