The words no Firefighter wants to hear, “MAYDAY, MAYDAY, MAYDAY” was transmitted last week at a house fire in Roanoke County (Va). “MAYDAY” is the term Firefighters use when their life or safety is in jeopardy and they are unable to remove themselves from the situation.
Firefighter Robert Mauck fell through both the 2nd and 1st floors of a residential structure and found himself hanging upside down in the basement.
He was remarkably uninjured and says his training saved his life. He did an interview about the Incident on a local News Station (WDBJ 7) tonight. Watch that interview in the video below.
Stay SAFE and in House!
