Flint Firefighters Suspended After Missing a Woman’s Body

Flickr user Ada Be

Do you remember the house fire that happened last month, where a woman’s body was eventually found after firefighters put out the fire? 12 hours later a neighbor found the woman’s body and now the firefighters on scene have been suspended with pay.

According to WNEM, they’re suspended while authorities continue to investigate to try to figure out how they didn’t see the body when they put out the fire. Public Safety Director Alvern Lock discussed the incident yesterday:

‘”The city has suspended the five employees with pay while its investigation continues. Proper protocol is to search … for any victims.'”

Lock goes on to say they are making sure the firefighters did everything they were supposed to, as standard procedure.

No other details have been released. Do you think they should still get paid while they’re suspended? Not sure how they could have missed the body, but then again, errors happen. Should they receive a harsher punishment?
