About this creation
Just as one of the FFs was about to be loaded into an ambo, his heart suddenly stopped beating. The doctor quickly came over and attempted to start it again with a defibrillator, but after 1 hour of CPR, he was pronnunced dead.
Our thoughts are with his family as the medics cover him with a sheet.
The other FF suffered servere burns all over his body, but survived as his helmet stayed on. Police are stilllooking for the hooligans.
