Firefighter Always Ready to Help

Nov. 20, 2001

Fred Claud Scheffold Jr. wasn't the kind of guy who would wait around for a doctor to come if he saw somebody suffering.

The New York City Fire Department battalion chief would rush to the aid of a stranger -- even if there were no fire involved and he was off-duty -- and give first aid.

He was killed trying to reach the 90th floor of Tower Two of the World Trade Center when the skyscraper collapsed.

Scheffold is survived by a wife and three daughters.
