Firefighter Who Worked at WTC Site Dies of Apparent Heart Attack

NY 1 - December 21, 2010

A member of the New York City Fire Department who worked at the World Trade Center site following the September 11th attacks has died.

Fitzroy Haines Junior died Sunday from an apparent heart attack.

He was assigned to Ladder 15 in Manhattan and worked in the FDNY for more than nine years.

Fire Commissioner Salvatore Cassano says it's too soon to determine whether Haines' work at the World Trade Center contributed to his death.

Cassano says the medical examiner will determine the cause of death.
