Rescuer Death

Victim’s 12-year-old son was waiting for his father to finish work so that he might ride the horse to the barn.  As the father was dumping his last car, the boy fell into the hot ashes.  The father jumped in to rescue him and both were so badly burned that they died a few days later.

The deceased:
  • William Farrar, 56
  • Son of William Farrar, 12
