Mayor, FDNY commissioner gather at hospital where Lt. Nappi died
Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Fire Commissioner Salvatore Cassano gathered at Woodhull Hospital this evening to remember FDNY Lt. Richard Nappi, who died battling a fire at a Bushwick warehouse.
"He was an extraordinary firefighter and an extraordinary fire officer. He was a leader that people would follow," said Cassano.
Officials say Nappi, a 17-year-veteran of the FDNY, suffered an apparent heart attack. He was later pronounced dead.
