Doctors, staff who tried to save fallen BK firefighter honored

Doctors and staff at Woodhull Medical Center were honored today for their valiant attempts to save the life of FDNY Lt. Richard Nappi.

Nappi became overheated while fighting a warehouse fire on April 16.

Paramedics, doctors and nurses spent more than a half-hour trying to revive him, but were unsuccessful.

Despite Nappi's death, FDNY Deputy Asst. Chief James Leonard honored the doctors and staff with a plaque, saying they did everything possible and worked seamlessly to try and save his life.
