Sixteen months after Dallas firefighter Stan Wilson died when a burning building collapsed on him, the Dallas Fire and Rescue Department on Friday took some responsibility for his death.
“Do the right thing.” That’s the message Jenny Wilson is sending to the Dallas Fire Department. “Let us know what happened.” It’s been more than 14 months since her husband, Stan Wilson, a veteran Dallas Firefighter, died battling a North Dallas apartment fire.
Dallas Firefighter Ryan Snow says he had no idea one particular call this week would have such an impact on him. Snow, along with other firefighters were called out to the 10300 block of Limestone Road on reports of a trapped animal.
Had he never put on a firefighter’s uniform, Scott Tanksley would have still been a hero to in the small Texas towns of Kemp and Mabank in Kaufman County.
Behind the smoke… behind the fire… there was confusion, flawed communications and a sense that things were getting out of control.
Former Dallas firefighter Jesus Ventura, 37, faces up to 20 years in prison after pleading guilty to a federal bank robbery charge.
