Several Joaquin City workers were repairing an underground sewer line when the sides of the hole they were working in collapsed, yesterday evening. The man who died was a bystander, who's brother was one of the ones trapped. He was trying to help the other two when a second collapse occurred. One of the city workers was freed after about 30 minutes of work by members of the Joaquin Fire Department. He was not injured. Desoto Fire District #1 responded with their special rescue team and rescued the second worker, who was then airlifted to University Health in Shreveport.
They then recovered the body of the bystander, who was taken to Community Funeral Home in Center. According to the Funeral Home the man's name is Patrick Park 52 of Joaquin. The incident is still under investigation. The Joaquin Fire Department would like to ask the community to pray for the family of the victims.
Three years ago, the Joaquin Volunteer Fire Department created a Junior Firefighter Program as a way to get more young people involved in serving their community. The program has been a huge success, and on Monday night, eight of the first members were honored as they prepare for their high school graduation.
Firefighters Zachary Bates, Lucas Brazzell, Sunshine Carroll, Ronny Godinez, Hunter Holt, and Levi Manali were among the first recruits to the program, which allows youngsters to enroll at age 16 to begin training. At age 18, they are eligible to transition to the department's active membership roster. The six firefighters mentioned, along with Brock Pugh, who joined the department at age 18, are set to graduate from Joaquin High School later this month.
In recognition of their accomplishment, the graduates were presented with a gift by Fire Chief Perry Pugh, who made the following statement: "I've been here over 40 years, and I can't remember us ever having this many graduates in a year. It's good to see our department growing with young people." The graduates were then treated to a BBQ dinner by the other members. The JVFD is actively recruiting new recruits to the Junior Firefighter Program. If you are at least 16 years old and are interested, contact Asst. Chief Jeremy Boyett, Training Officer Stephen Ewing, or Secretary/ Treasurer Rusty Wilson.
