Chief 36-1 was on the scene within a minute and established command. EMS Chief 36 (Hake) arrived on the scene shortly after and began patient care. Aeromedical was called for dur to the extent of the patients injuries. Rescue 36 and Engine 35-2 setup a landing zone in the parking lot. The patient was flow to York Hospital where he was pronounced dead. The coroner has ruled the death a suicide.
