Cambridge firefighter dies during training exercise

A 35-year-old firefighter from Cambridge, Minnesota died last week during a routine training exercise with his fire department.

The firefighter was training rescuing techniques with a rope. He was climbing up a rope when he suddenly fell eight feet onto a concrete floor. The man suffered blunt force trauma to his body and head. He died shortly after the accident.

The death has been ruled an accident, although the OSHA is still investigating the incident. The man’s funeral will be held at Cambridge-Isanti High School.

Our thoughts and sympathies are with the friends and family of the man who died in this accident.
