Soon after arriving, we went to a injury accident in the Hunting Park section located at 915 Rising Sun Avenue.  Engine 55, Ladder Tower 22, Squad 72, Battalion 8, Medic 4 and Medic 2.

Firefighters found a car hit a warehouse with severe front end damage.  A male passenger, 75 years old, was in cardiac arrest and CPR was being administered when we arrived.  The person was pronounced dead shortly after.  The driver, a 25 year-old woman suffered injuries and transported to Temple University Hospital.  Squad 72 was recalled upon finding out no one pinned inside the car.

Moments later, Engine 50 is caught on camera leaving their quarters enroute to a shooting at 16th and Lippincott Streets.  A 23 year-old male was found shot to death in his car.
